Chic, sophisticated and classic as the AG team describes their jeans. And yes, it is more than true. AG Jeans are one of the best denim brands out there. Their comfortable fabrics and never ending new looks are perfect for everyone looking for their favorite pair of jeans. AG Jeans started in 2000 by a denim pioneer Yul ku, originally created to be an exclusive premium denim brand, it turned its image into a more contemporary and lifestyle brand in 2008 when Samuel Ku, son of Yul Ku, took over as the brand’s Creative Director.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
