WANNA DIG IN AND GET TO WORK?

PACT team summer 2012

 

PACT is a movement disguised as a clothing company. We are obsessed with a big idea: clothes that make the world a better place. But saving the planet costs money, so we decided to build a business to fund great causes. We started with something basic: socks with soul, altruistic underwear, and other everyday essentials made with fabrics that feel good and go easy on the environment.

The best part: with every purchase, you help PACT make a positive change in our world. Each season, PACT designs a new collection of clothing inspired by someone doing something good: whether it’s about clean water, sustainable food, or affordable housing—we stick to the basics. We invest in projects that create independence. We are solution-oriented. Optimistic. Community-based. And we make great underwear along the way. Our line of high quality, great value clothing is growing but it's still the essentials--underwear, socks, graphic tees, with more to come. No matter what PACT does, we always stay true to our basic principles. Good design. Good fabric. Good cause.
