Denim never went out of fashion since it came into the picture. The rough and durable fabric is an important part of the apparel industry. Be it jeans, jackets, sneakers, skirts or shirts denim always find its way to our wardrobes. Ripped, torn, scratched, dirty you name it and denim would still rock it like a queen.

But sadly, the manufacturing process of the popular fabric is highly unsustainable. The amount of water used in the process of manufacturing denim for cotton-growing, dyeing, washing etc is huge and is no good for the environment.

It is estimated that, 1,800 gallons of water is used to make a single pair of jeans. You can imagine the amount of water that would be required to create manufacture millions of jeans around the world.

Wiping out jeans from the market could be a possible solution but asking people to give up jeans might be too much to ask. Then comes Numero Uno to the rescue.
