Sustainability is in our DNA. We’re always looking forward when it comes to fashion, social justice and environmental responsibility – like how more than 60% of all Levi’s® products are made using our Water<Less® technology, saving over 3.5 billion liters of water so far.

This Earth Day we’re highlighting our latest efforts with Tencel™ Lyocell that continue to strengthen our commitment to environmental conservation.


Tencel™ Lyocell is created using an environmentally responsible production process and made from sustainably harvested wood. That means it helps preserve ancient forests, rainforest and ancient woodland.

Blending Tencel™ Lyocell with cotton, polyester and wool, creates a softness you wouldn't get otherwise. Though it's not all about the amazing quality and feel; you'll also have peace of mind knowing you're helping the Earth by wearing sustainable denim.
