At Raintees we love companies that care as much about the products they produce as how they produce them. PACT apparel is an undergarment movement that goes above and beyond in sustainable production. They make clothes using only non-GMO organic cotton that is harvested on family farms and manufactured in a wind-powered facility. This process translates into creating ‘socks with soul’, ‘altruistic underwear’ and other eco-fabulous items.
Another thing we like? PACT Apparel is a company that gives back. Each season the team chooses an initiative to support from clean drinking-water, to affordable housing, to sustainable food production. This year they are partnering with the Whole Planet Foundation to raise $50,000 toward helping low-income entrepreneurs start their own small businesses.
Consider joining them by buying yourself a new pair of socks or underwear from this company that is optimistic, community based, and making clothes to make the world a better place!
