Creating that cool blue hue that comes with the typical pair of jeans [1] can be one of the most water intensive processes in textile production, sucking up to 42 liters of water during finishing alone. But Levi’s [2] is changing all of that with their new line of water conscious jeans dubbed the  Water<Less jeans [3]. Coming in more than a dozen of Levi’s classic cuts, each pair will boast an average of 28 percent less water—and up to 96 percent for certain products.
