Doing more through
Every drop counts, so we aim to use less water.
These are made using our Water<Less? techniques.
DOCKERS® WATER<LESS® CLOTHING
At Dockers® we employ production techniques that use far less water than traditional methods, making for more eco-friendly, sustainable clothing. We believe that using less is more, and it is all part of our Water<Less® production process.
Our designers got serious about saving water and are constantly thinking of new ways to create the same quality clothing that you love - in a sustainable way. To date, we use more than 20 water-saving techniques, and we share our methods with others to inspire industry-wide progress. While cutting back on H2O we make our sustainable clothing using techniques, such as reusing water during production and creating new finishes that require less water than traditional processes.
Our eco-friendly clothing is made with Dockers® Water<Less® techniques include some of our best selling pants like Dockers® Alpha Khaki, Easy Stretch Khaki, Workday Khaki, and Signature Khaki. The sustainability does not stop there, we also make button-ups shirts - both short and long sleeve, breathable hoodies, beanies, hats, shorts - cargo and flat, and belts that will help them stay on you. If you are wanting a nice layering piece, check out our Water<Less® blazer and bomber jackets.
So far, we have saved more than 2 billion liters and recycled more than 200 million liters of water. As of today, more than 40% of all Levi’s® sustainable clothing products are made with Water<Less® techniques. But we won’t stop there. We can reduce up to 96% of the water normally used in denim finishing, the final stage in making of a pair of jeans. By 2020, our goal is for 80% of all Levi’s® products to be made using Water<Less® innovations.
Here are some other ways to help you be more eco-friendly without having to buy any Dockers® eco-friendly clothing. Wash your clothes only when needed. It is a myth that you need to wash them after every wear, and if you do wash them use cold water. Hang them out in the sun to air dry and save electricity. Take showers instead of baths. It takes a fraction of the water and energy, and who likes wrinkly tub fingers? Wash your car with the rain. No one will call you lazy—you are helping the planet. They will call you a hero. Use the dishwasher if you have one. Running a fully-loaded dishwasher actually uses less water than washing by hand. Check those sprinkler valves in your garden. An unknown leak could waste a lot of precious H2O.
