    there are so many little brands jumping on this bandwagon who are just in it for the money. i got a loomstate tee and a rogan jacket. i would like to buy more but i wont be fooled by these disingenuous little brands.

    have to say that there is a few already existing brands -as you say-jumping on the bandwagon, offering a "green" line as a complement to their collection.
    surely that can only be a good thing even though fundamentally, it is a marketing thing.
    they are trying to get inside your wallet somehow anyway....
    but it is something positive at the end of the day.

    it easy to be cynical about this whole green thing when it comes to some of the (most of the) brands. as adero says it ultimately has to be a good thing.

    rogan and sugar cane both cater for the enviro-shopper. SC40401 Hawaiian vintage cut selvedge canes are my next planned denim buy.

    Because The Industry Is So Nascent There Are No Real Standards. Sugar Cane Have A History Of Producing Denim Made With Fibres Which Are Apparently Less Harmful To The Environment. A Lot Of The Other Brands Are Just Seeing An Opportunity To Make Hard Cash.
