San Francisco designer Yves Béhar of fuseproject has designed a range of sustainable underwear for clothing retailer PACT, an online apparel company offering design-driven, sustainably manufactured, premium underwear connected to powerful social and environmental causes.
PACT underwear is made of organic cotton and is made according to strict environmental and social standards. Plus, ten percent of profits will be given to social and environmental organizations. Hence the motto, “Change Starts With Your Underwear.”
Manufactured in Turkey, all processes—from growing the cotton to producing the finished product—occur within a 100-mile radius. Every part of the supply chain is certified to or exceeds the highest possible environmental and social standards. Even the shipping is earth-friendly: PACT underwear arrives in compostable shipping bags and each pair is packaged in a reusable cloth bag made from scraps.
Through his partnership with Herman Miller, Béhar designed the Leaf personal light, the Ardea personal light, and the new Twist LED task light. Like PACT underwear, Béhar’s lighting solutions were designed with Mother Earth in mind.
