Fashion & Water Consumption.

Do you know how much water it takes to make a tee shirt?

713 Gallons.

Do you know how much water is used to make a pair of jeans?

1800 Gallons.

These are insane statistics. Based on simple math, we figure we're saving millions of gallons of water by wearing vintage clothing. For context, an average 5' deep swimming pool is filled with 20k gallons of water.

That's 11 pairs of jeans.

Or 28 tee shirts.

Think about that for a minute. We've been recycling vintage gear for almost 30 years - so this is not trendy for us - this is our way of life. Imagine if we all chipped in a little bit? We sure would do a lot for the environment.
