How should often should we wash our favourite pair of Levi's jeans? To produce a single pair of jeans can use up to 3,800 litres of water in its lifetime. This is equivalent to the average amount of water consumed by an individual over the course of about 1,200 to 1,900 days, or approximately 3 to 5 years. The World Economic Forum rates water issues among the top financial risks to the global economy, and the United Nations estimates that 2 billion people live in countries experiencing high water stress.
