How dirty are your jeans?
Levi's CEO Chip Bergh encouraged denim wearers not to wash their jeans for both aesthetic and environmental reasons.
While that may help to reduce some of the toxins getting into our water systems, the manufacturing of jeans themselves still has to be addressed.
Denim manufacturing requires chemical-intensive washes, dying processes, bleaching, and fabric printing can involve heavy metals, including lead and mercury, which factories often discharge into rivers. The wastewater changes both the colour and smell of rivers, sometimes into a reeking, oozing mass.
Film screening will be followed by a short discussion.
