The one person in our family who regularly gets new clothes is my daughter — and that’s mostly because she outgrows stuff so fast. But every once in a while, it would be nice if my husband and I can treat ourselves. If that “treat” also happens to involve something we’ll regularly need anyway, all the better.
Pact organic cotton undies are NOT your mother’s underwear. When I was a kid, I used to dread opening a gift box on Christmas morning to find some family member had given me underwear. If I opened a box containing these underwear, I’d be really happy about it! They are bold, graphic and anything but boring. Even the solid colors are vibrant, in shades like purple and blue.
The women’s undies are available in a variety of styles, including bikinis, boy shorts and thongs. The men’s undies are available in boxers, trunks and boxer briefs. And beyond the fact that these are made of organic cotton, each pair is inspired by a social or environmental cause. For example, the Green Belt collection is inspired by The Green Belt Movement, which was founded by environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Wangari Maathai in 1977. It began as a grassroots tree-planting program aimed at addressing environmental damage, but since has evolved into a vehicle for empowering women, advocating for human rights and supporting peaceful democratic change. To date, more than 40 million trees have been planted throughout Africa.
