  • On average, it takes 1,500 liters (about 396 gallons) of water to produce a single pair of jeans.

The way I see it, jeans are the cornerstone of any wardrobe worth having. People of all ages, styles, professions, and income levels wear them, but as common as the popular pant style is, they're actually rather harmful to the environment.  From the pesticides and insecticides used to grow cotton to the massive amounts of water, energy, and chemicals used to process the materials and turn them into denim, jeans rank as one of the least eco-friendly clothing items to make. According to Everlane , it takes about 1,500 liters (that's roughly 396 gallons) of water to produce a single pair of jeans . Realistically, those stats aren't going to prevent anyone from buying jeans. But as responsible consumers, we can do our part by shopping brands that value sustainability in their production methods. So, to point you in the right direction, we rounded up seven brands that are making jeans more sustainably by implementing less wasteful manufacturing techniques and more effective recycling programs.  From startups like Frank And Oak and Outerknown to legacy brands like Levi's , you won't have a problem finding denim with high-impact style and low-impact everything else. 7 brands making sustainable denim:Everlane Learn more about Everlane denim and shop for men and women here Everlane has always been about transparency.

  • An umbrella stroller is a smart investment to make. Once your child needs a sippy-cup holder and footrest, it's time to purchase an umbrella stroller.
  • When it comes to choosing the best umbrella stroller for you and your family, there are a few different criteria to consider, including weight, folding ability, and maneuverability.
  • The Maclaren Triumph Stroller is a well-made umbrella stroller with a variety of features that is guaranteed to last through multiple kids.
An umbrella stroller is a smart investment to make when it comes to buying baby products. Once your child needs a sippy-cup holder and footrest, it's time to purchase an umbrella stroller. From the moment I used my first umbrella stroller on a family holiday, I've been hooked. They are lightweight and fold up easily. You can store them in places like the trunk, the back seat of your car, or in an overhead luggage bin. And if your home is short on space, they fit in smaller closets without taking up too much room. Also, at a certain point, often around the 6-month mark, you just won't need a larger stroller. Once your little one is walking, they'll often want to explore rather than be confined to a stroller. Having a lightweight umbrella stroller will ensure you're not lugging around a heavy buggy while trying to chase down an energetic toddler. When it comes to choosing the best stroller for you and your family, there are a few different criteria to consider:
  • Weight: The lighter, the better
  • Quality: You want them to last through multiple kids and trips
  • Folding ability: Nothing is worse than struggling with both a toddler and a stroller
  • Maneuverability: How easily it handles different terrain
  • Cost: Your budget
Here are the best umbrella strollers you can buy:
