How Sustainable Is PACT?

Pact is an ecological womenswear, menswear, kids wear, and home-textiles brand. Pact uses GOTS Certified organic cotton as the primary textile for all of their apparel and home pieces. This brand will occasionally also use an organic cotton blended material, such as one containing elastane or hemp, depending on the intended usage of the garment. However, many of their merchandise items are solely made of 100% organic cotton.

Pact’s use of primarily only organic cotton fibers has numerous environmental benefits. Firstly, it saves 91% of the water that would have been required for farming the traditional chemical filled non-organic cotton. Secondly, it supports soil health and the ecosystems around it. Thirdly, the cultivation and spinning process of organic cotton uses less fuels and energy consumption resulting in a reduced carbon footprint. And fourthly, organic cotton does not shed harmful and environmentally damaging microfiber plastics when washed in the manufacturing process nor at home when laundered by the customers.

Pact carefully calculates their carbon production and then offsets it by buying and supporting wind energy in other locations. This aids in encouraging increased sustainable global development and places pressure on other manufacturers to behave more environmentally friendly. Additionally, Pact uses only post-consumer recycled paper in their packaging that can continue to be recycled. This brand also only employs biodegradable garment bags.
