Meet The Sustainable Skinny Jeans Made from Organic Cotton and Bamboo

In my quest for a more sustainable life in general and wardrobe in particular, I am looking for clothes made of more eco-friendly fabrics.

How My BAM Bamboo Jeans Look

OK let’s start with the look and feel of my BAM jeans. I bought my BAM Bamboo Jeans in size 10, also known as 28. This was a bit of a gamble, as I am normally a 12, but they only had stock in 10 at the time of ordering. And it was fortuitous as they fit perfectly! They are a little on the long side so I tend to roll them up with boots, or down with trainers. They now come in two leg lengths so that is better, I would choose the shorter one.

One of the best things about my BAM bamboo jeans is that they are designed to be sustainable and recyclable.

Poke the back of the button through the hole…
BAM sent me a new button in two pieces, after the original one worked loose and popped off.

The Benefits of Sustainable Jeans

Instead of adding additional care labels to their bamboo and organic cotton jeans, BAM print all the info on the inside of the pockets. These jeans are developed in line with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Jeans Redesign.

Bamboo is a Sustainable Choice

BAM became Climate Positive last year and bamboo is one of the most sustainable fabrics. It doesn’t need pesticides, making it better for the environment, and workers.
