Do you know how much water your favorite jeans consume in their lifecycle?

In a video on the  Greenbiz website, Levi’s reported completing a lifecycle analysis for a pair of thier jeans and determined it uses 3,480 liters of water in its entire life cycle. They determined that 49% of the water is used in growing the cotton while 45% is used in home laundering, and 11% in the milling, manufacturing, and prewashing the jeans.

WOW!
