Episode 165 | PACT + GROWING COTTON BETTER, WITHOUT THE GROSS STUFF
In episode 165, Kestrel welcomes Brendan Synnott, the CEO of Pact Apparel, to the show. Offering head-to-toe basics, Pact believes in crafting clothing differently: sustainable materials, kindness toward humans and the softest clothing you’ll want on every layer.
“If I wanted to change everything in my wardrobe — if I just changed everything to organic cotton, how much more is that really going to cost me? And it turns out it’s not that much, and what impact does that make.”
-Brendan Synnott, CEO of Pact
On this week’s show, Brendan shares more on what originally got him interested in the health movement, and how impactful it was for him to see his grandfather shift his diet after being diagnosed with heart disease.
Also, Brendan shares more on Pact’s supply chain, and how they grow, spin, knit and sew their organic cotton garments in Fair Trade factories in India.
The below thoughts, ideas + organizations were brought up in this chat:
Bear Naked, granola company Brendan built and sold to Kellog’s
Evol Foods, another food brand that Brendan built, to create healthier frozen food options
