Wearing Jeans Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles

Recycled plastic bottles and jeans are not words that you usually see in the same sentence. These eco jeans that I am wearing are made from denim using 97% recycled plastic bottles…

I will always chose a recycled product even if I have to pay a little more for it.

I am so pleased that one of my favourite large retail companies JD Williams are selling sustainable products such as these. High five to JDW, imagine if all retail companies started to sell sustainable products!


Recycled Plastic Coolmax® Eco Denim:

Think about that figure a whopping  97% Not only that but these jeans have breathable fabric for the air to flow through. They actually keep you cool. I can completely attest to this being true, because I wore them on one of the hottest days of the year!

Not only that but these jeans have breathable fabric for the air to flow through. They actually keep you cool!


Win Win win!

Anything that is made from recycled plastic and therefore,  has a reduced environmental impact gets my vote. We all know what a devastating mess plastic is making of our planet.I want my boy to grow up in a world full of beauty not one destroyed by the consequences of our irresponsible actions.

Personally I would chose a recycled product over another, even if I had to pay a little more for it. Luckily these jeans are a reasonable price. You can probably can buy cheaper but every choice we make to shop sustainably from our potatoes to our jeans shop helps keep our planet healthy!

These jeans are a super relaxed, slim cut fit,perfect if you dont want skinny but dont like any bagginess. A tiny bit of distressing adds some fun.

There is a small amount of stretch but not too much, you won’t end up with a baggy behind at the end of the day!

There is also a pair of shorts available in the same denim fabric (also made from recycled plastic bottles)

COOLMAX® is a trademark of INVISTA.

    The headline got me to click in to this post Ashley, I love the idea! I’m completely open to the idea of some recycled clothing :). They are super flattering on you.

      Hi Helen and hello, nice to see you on here!

    These jeans look super and I too am a fan of recycling. However, I’m astonished at the lack of awareness in comments of the issue of plastic microfibres in our oceans. These are getting into waterways in such volume through washing synthetic fibres that fish are ingesting them and so, in turn, are we. Hopefully washing machine manufacturers will respond to this by including adequate filters in new machines. In the meantime, you can save your new jeans from polluting the oceans by using something called a Guppy bag.
    I’m not criticising anyone, just trying to raise awareness of the issues here.

      Hi Rachel
      Thanks for your very informative comment.
      I am aware of this problem too!
      Education is the key I think and every little thing that each person can do helps surely?
      I will look into using the guppy bag..
      Thanks once again for this info
      best wishes

        I have only recently become aware of the issue, through the WI. Washing garments less often is is an obvious way to reduce the problem, but using liquid detergents rather than abrasive powders reduces the shedding of the microfibres too. 🙂 if another two people read and learn from this then I can earn ‘WI brownie points’ (not a real thing!

      I think anything we can do or any choice we take should be to help reduce the plastic problems

    Fantastic! It’s awful and devastating how much plastic waste there is only in the sea! The world needs to be more aware!

    Who’d have thought that denim could be made this way? What a cool idea! They look great on too. Love the pink top but I’m afraid Murphy’s stealing your show here!
