The humble pair of jeans may be our favourite wardrobe staple, but it hasn't always gotten the best rap when it came to environmental impact.
Traditionally, the denim production process guzzles both energy and water, taking a major toll on the planet and its resources.
So how can we enjoy the endless versatility that a good pair of jeans provides, minus the guilt? Enter esteemed Aussie label Sussan, which has revamped the way it makes denim, bringing us super-stylish options that are also kind to Mother Nature.
Sussan denim uses Repreve yarn, an innovative fibre that's made from recycled plastic bottles. This recycled polyester is blended with cotton and elastane to create soft, easy-to-wear, durable jeans that will take you from season to season.
Even better, Sussan denim supports Aussie farmers, with many of the brand's signature styles made from Australian cotton. So when you purchase a pair of jeans, you're not just gaining a fashion essential, you're also doing your part for a greener, cleaner future and helping to fund the livelihoods of Australian cotton farmers, one in four of which are women.

Let's take a closer look at Sussan's eco-friendly denim range, designed to look good on every woman.
A must-have for the cooler months, relaxed-fit denim will be your new everyday go-to. It's a silhouette that looks great on every woman. Dress it up with ankle boots and a blazer or make it casual with comfy slides and a cardigan.
Give a fun nod to the '70s with a wide leg jean that looks flattering on every body shape. The high waist and flared fit elongate your legs and boost the glam factor of any look. Pair yours with a flowy feminine blouse and you'll easily take them from the office to lunch with friends.
With all the comfiness of a sweatpant and the tailored look of denim, look no further than a denim jogger pant for easy, everyday style. The elasticated waist and ankle cuffs will keep you feeling good when wearing yours all day long.
The classic denim skirt's been given the winter update with a midi version that's incredibly flattering. Side pockets and inner seam detailing add interest and a feeling of luxury. Style yours with loafers or knee-length boots, and you'll be ready to tackle whatever the day throws at you in comfort and style.
