You recycle, carry a reusable water bottle, and bring cloth bags to the grocery store, so you’re living pretty green already, but now you can show your love for the planet with your fashion choices, too. Designers are creating clothes out of recycled materials and now you can snag a pair of trendy cropped jeans that are made from trash and they’re available at Walmart, of all places.
The Time and Tru High-rise Skinny Jeggings are made of a recycled fabric called Repreve, which is created by breaking down plastic water bottles and blending them cotton. The result is a smooth fabric with a denim-like finish. So they look good and they’re environmentally friendly.
These jeans come in various colors and washes, including white and pink. And unlike some eco-friendly apparel out there, these are actually affordable at just under $17. If you’re more of a boot cut or skinny jeans girl, Time and Tru is coming out with those in July.
