GREEN JEANS: What do you get when you match Alanis Morisette with Woody Harrelson? No, not some naked, musical, pot-smoking fiesta. Jeans! The duo's love of Mother Earth lead to the creation of their eco-friendly denim line, Reco Jeans. The brand uses recycled denim to cut down on waste and shows off its tree-hugging ways with a back pocket design that represents the five elements of nature. Reco launched with a Dutch auction that let customers create their own price for one of 300 limited-edition box sets of the jeans. Auction results will determine future price points for the line. Let's hope they aim low for these high-quality bottoms.
