New Partnership Explores Upcycled Fashion

New Partnership Explores Upcycled Fashion
Pact is teaming up with Zero Waste Daniel to create reimagined, sustainable fashion garments.

Pact has joined forces with Zero Waste Daniel to create an exclusive line of hoodies for both men and women that include hand-crafted, 100 percent recycled patches. This capsule collection was developed to show consumers that sustainable fashion is accessible and serves a global purpose.

"Being able to partner with another pioneer in the fashion revolution is why we were so excited about the collaboration with Zero Waste Daniel," said Brendan Synnott, CEO of Pact, in a statement. 

The collection—two hoodies and a pair of sweat shorts for women and one hoodie for men—includes 100 percent organic, Fair Trade Certified pieces from Pact's spring line adorned with unique, handmade patches created from scrap fabric. This limited collection was inspired by both brands' desire to demonstrate how fashion can be eco-conscious and trendy while still being very attainable to the masses.

"Collaborating with Pact is an amazing opportunity to show the value of materials. Using leftover samples from the design process, we were able to create hundreds of pieces of beautiful upcycled patchwork," said Daniel Silverstein of Zero Waste Daniel in a statement.

The collection drops on April 24 (Fashion Revolution Day) with a mission to enlighten consumers to care about who made their clothes and the impact they have on the environment. Now, more than ever, consumers are looking for companies that are doing right by people and the planet, while still providing interesting and affordable products. Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of where they spend their dollar, and the apparel industry needs to rise to the occasion to show how it can uphold higher environmental and social standards, stated Pact in a press release.

Select styles for this spring capsule collection are available in XS-XL for both men and women and can be purchased at wearpact.com starting April 24.
