Attention eco-chic women who are interested transforming the face of fashion: check out Del Forte Denim.
Based out of Los Angeles – a city known for its anti-sweatshop legislation and enforcement, Del Forte Denim has partnered with The Sustainable Cotton project, which is known for bringing together farmers, manufacturers and consumers to grow markets for certified organically grown and sustainable cotton.
The brains behind the designs, Tierra Del Forte’s career started in 1999. After touring various manufacturing facilities around the globe, Tierra saw what an impact the design industry had on the environment. Tierra was so concerned about this, that when she returned to California, she dedicated her work to creating a company that was eco-friendly in all ways possible.
Out of that came Del Forte Denim.
Everything in her collection is stylish, modern and environmentally responsible. They also a recycling program called Project Rejeaneration. Once you’ve tired of your old Del Forte jeans, you can return them to the company. In return you can have a 10% discount off your next order or donated the proceeds to the Sustainable Cotton Project.
I know what I want from Santa this Christmas…
