Their comfortable fabrics and never ending new looks are perfect for everyone looking for their favorite pair of jeans.

However, AG doesn’t stop with beautiful comfortable jeans for everyone, the brand is also socially and environmentally active and driven.

Here is a piece taken from the AG Jeans websites that elaborates on their environmental responsibilities.

 Water Conservation

We place a high priority on reducing our water usage. Our production facilities utilize Ozone Technology, which cuts water consumption by 50 percent while minimizing the use of chemicals and energy. First implemented in 2010, the Ozone process has saved millions of gallons of water.

Eco-Friendly Fibers

Premium fabrics are a core component of our designs, and we source materials that benefit our customers as well as the planet. Many of our textiles incorporate sustainable fibers such as Tencel® and Modal®, which are entirely natural and biodegradable.

Waste Reduction

AG takes great care to reduce the amount of waste we generate. We cut our patterns in a way that maximizes fabric yardage and keeps the amount of leftover materials at a minimum. Excess scraps are collected for recycling on a weekly basis, totaling approximately 1,300 to 1,400 pounds per week, and are repurposed as home and car insulation.

Energy Efficiency

We continually invest in the latest technology in order to increase the efficiency of our manufacturing facilities. Our heat-saving equipment recycles heat from commercial dryers, reducing laundry energy consumption by up to 46 percent.

 

AG jeans also has a “Green Label” which was made for a more active lifestyle. The mission was to redefine sportswear for the modern era. Creating the green line was specific to the active lifestyle. Their styles are made with quality and the image of “sharp yet comfortable attire”. Mostly specific for golfers, the green label is styled beyond just the golf course.

If you’re not convinced yet, come into Ecco and try on some AG jeans! Here are just some of the styles we are carrying right now!

AMO Translated Is The Latin Root Word For Love

 

Yes it is true! Ecco is proud to now be carrying a new denim line. Since we are the denim hot spot of downtown Burlington, we knew there was no better way to start off July than gaining a new denim line. Recently created, AMO denim has five specific must have styles that targets all customers. Created by industry veterans with experience from True Religion and Current Elliot, AMO’s five styles are cut from the best vintage denim and range from your true boyfriend jean to your true skinny jean. All of their denim is carefully made with love so that everyone can find their perfect jean. Below is a small excerpt from the AMO website that elaborates further on the AMO story

imgres

Longtime friends and self proclaimed denim soulmates, Kelly Urban and Misty Zollars founded AMO in 2014 out of a personal desire and void in the market.  ”We couldn’t find the jeans we wanted to wear” both stated, ”We absolutely love vintage jeans, but we find that they rarely fit well and are often uncomfortable.  We wanted that vintage look, but also wanted a jean that fit perfectly, and that felt good on.

But it doesn’t stop here, AMO also works with a non-profit organization named SNP LA. This non-profit organization is the largest nonprofit spay and neuter animal welfare organization in California. When buying a pair of AMO denim, you know that a small portion of the proceeds are going to a loving and nurturing organization. What better way to shop? Here is another excerpt from the AMO website explaining in depth what SNP LA does.

 SNP LA’s vision is to ensure that spay, neuter and veterinary wellness services are affordable and accessible to all pet owners in the Los Angeles area and to create an environment in which animal shelters no longer rely on euthanizing animals as a way of controlling pet population.  SNP LA has spayed and neutered over 100,000 cats and dogs – preventing millions of animals from being born into homelessness.

Here are the 5 styles that AMO carries. Each come in different washes which include distressing and non-distressing. Come to Ecco this July and find your new favorite pair of jeans from AMO denim!

Made In The USA

 

Did you know that most of Ecco’s brands are made in the USA? Well it’s true almost all of our denim brands and about half of our dresses, tops, and accessories are all made here, in the USA.  Made in the states brands have such an effect on the environment and on the country’s economy. Almost always, brands that are made in the states have higher labor standards and allow safe working conditions, plus they all have a higher standard when it comes to keeping the environment clean. When you choose products made in the USA, you contribute to the payment of an honest day’s work for laborers. We at Ecco are happy to contribute to all positive aspects of Made in the USA brands products, and encourage others to contribute as well. This Fourth of July stop in at Ecco and receive 20% off all denim! Let us help support your country! Below are some of the brands that are Made in the USA.
