Each year 6 billion pairs of jeans are produced each year. That production comes with consequences, water usage being one of them. Let’s just say, if you drink 2 liters of water each day, it would take you 5 years to drink as much water as it takes to create one pair of cotton jeans. However, many companies are coming up with ways to make their denim production process more sustainable. 

One thing is clear: there's enough clothing out there already. This is why Bibi and Jean only uses secondhand clothing.  

Production materials

I get my secondhand clothing from flea markets, thrift stores and from people that donate their unwanted or damaged clothing. 


Shipping materials

Bibi and Jean products are shipped to you in 100% compostable mailers. These shipping bags are made out of 100% corn-based polymers. This means that they will easily compost on a home or industrial compost heap. This creates a circular economy where sustainable packaging materials can be disposed of responsibly by the recipient without any harm being done to the environment. For more info on how to dispose the 100% compostable mailer, watch this video. Some Bibi and Jean bags will be wrapped in 100% recycled paper.
