One of the best parts of school has to be the field trip, right? You’re out of the classroom and into “the real world.”

Last month, that real world was Levi Strauss & Co. for industrial and fashion design students at San Francisco’s California College of the Arts (CCA).

A group of about 20 students paid us a visit to understand our work and progress in the area of sustainability—in both operations and product design.
