Genes or Jeans?

My old roommate and good friend recently sent me a link for charming website featuring eco-conscience denim. I was thrilled, because denim with heart and soul can be very hard to come by. Monkee Genes were developed by Road Team, a company based out of the United Kingdom. These jeans are sweatshop free, made of organic cotton with no pesticides or chemicals used. In July 2008 Monkee Jeans was given the Soil Association organic standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). You can read a brief explanation of what this accreditation means here, but I suggest going to the Soil Association website to find out more. My favorites from the line are the Light Bamboo Supa Skinny and the Inky Black organic denim Supa Skinny and Skinny Jeans (both seen below). Hope you enjoy this new adventure in jean shopping!
