Before we discuss why I love organic clothes from PACT Organic, I need to get my standard disclaimer out of the way:
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.
Okay, now it’s time to review this awesome organic clothing.
Here we go…
A month or so ago, I scoured the internet for some cute yet ecofriendly clothes. I’d been wearing the same stuff for years, so a wardrobe overhaul was long overdue.
I have sensitive skin, and I hate rough fabric. I’ve been slowly incorporating color into my wardrobe, but I prefer staples in black, grey, and white. I enjoy taking walks with my family and chasing my kids around the playground, and I like to cover my assets without looking like I’m stuffed in a bulky sack.
Oh, and I’m on a budget. I expect my clothes to last a long time, but you won’t find me shelling out $500 for a hoodie in the near future. Or ever, probably.
When I update my wardrobe, I need clothing that meets all of the demands outlined above. That’s why I was super excited when a representative from May Media Group told me PACT Organic wanted to hook me up with some free organic clothes in exchange for my honest feedback.
Look what they sent me:
I received (from top left to bottom right) a hoodie, bikini underwear, long leggings, shelf bra camisole, racerback lounge bra, crew socks, and boxer briefs.
These organic clothes are awesome, and I plan to buy them again in the future (especially the hoodie, cami, and leggings). Here are 5 reasons why I love PACT Organic and the clothes they sell:
1) They Sell Sustainable, Organic Products
When I dine in public, I’m that crunchy chick who shoves beverage bottles in my backpack so I can recycle them when I get home. I avoid certain brands (which I’ll save for another post) because they have unethical business practices. I like to purchase products from companies that try to do the right thing, and PACT Organic’s mission aligns with my beliefs.
PACT Organic doesn’t just pretend they’re ethical without backing up their claims. The company is:
- Fair Trade Certified
- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified
- Organic Content Standard (OCS) certified
Oh, and you can recycle the super-cute box they ship their clothes in:
Go on, take a peek inside:
Haha. I seriously laughed out loud when I saw the bottom of the box. Awesome!
2) The Clothes Are Super Comfortable
PACT Organic claims their clothes are super soft. Lots of companies claim that, so I didn’t expect much. Luckily, they were telling the truth. I love the way these clothes feel on me, and I often sleep in them. I also run errands and exercise in them.
The company aims for transparency, so you can feel their clothes through the packaging before you buy them:
I already removed my clothes, but just pretend you can see a pair of leggings in the pic above.
The back of the package explains why PACT Organic has such soft apparel. It’s because each piece is carefully combed until the fabric softens. Hey, works for me.
3) They Don’t Use Child Labor
I recently watched some heartbreaking videos about child labor that made me rethink many of my fashion choices. Thankfully, you won’t find PACT Organic in a documentary about unethical business practices. They avoid using child labor, and they don’t force adults to work for the company either. Workers enjoy regular hours in a hygienic, discrimination-free environment. They decent wages, which is definitely something I wish more companies offered workers.
If you’ve never really thought about child labor, check out the adorable kids in this pic. Now imagine these same kids – and kids even younger than them – stuck working in freezing rain or excessive heat without adequate safety equipment. All day, every day.
Heartbreaking, isn’t it? That’s why I try to avoid companies that use child labor. Kids deserve to enjoy their time, not spend it earning pennies while someone else makes a huge profit off their labor.
4) They Make Wardrobe Staples
I’m a free spirit, but I tend to stick with the basics when it comes to clothing. I like simple pieces that pair well with everything. When I buy something I like, I typically wear it for years. I’ve still got stuff I wore when my daughter was a baby, and she’s 14 now.
My kids joke that I own 3 things: A hoodie, a tank top, and leggings. Well, they’re wrong – I also own flip flops and sneakers. Haha.
Anyway, PACT Organic offers all of these things. I’ve been wearing my PACT Organic hoodie constantly, and I have no plans to stop. I’ll probably order a smaller size next time since the XL was bigger than I expected, but I’m still happy with it.
Here, I’ll show you what I mean:
See how baggy the arms are? I like baggy clothes, but I think I’ll order a L instead of XL next time.
Oh, but check out the nifty thumb holder each sleeve has:
This is not a selling point for me, but it’s not a deal breaker either. I know lots of folks like those thumb holes, so I wanted you to know they exist.
5) The Clothes Are Designed Well
I have a huge problem finding leggings that fit right. I’m only 5’2”, so I’m okay with pants that are a bit too long. I’m referring to other issues that I always seem to encounter with leggings, and I’ll try to explain them in an appropriate manner. After all, this is a G-rated blog.
Okay, so leggings often have a large gap at the top that makes it look like I’m hiding an extra body part. Either that, or they’re tight to the point where you can see the outline of my underwear from every angle – front and back. PACT Organic leggings don’t have either of those issues, so I plan to add a few more pairs to my wardrobe.
Here’s a pic of the bottom of the leggings:
You may notice that I’m wearing glitter nail polish. For the record, it’s safe to wear that if you’re getting an MRI of your brain or neck. Just thought you’d all like to know that since I spent like a week worrying about it before my last scan.
The leggings are a little baggy and long, but keep in mind I ordered an XL. I’m only 5’2”. Apparently I have no clue what size I actually wear these days because I’m constantly buying stuff that’s too big.
The leggings are made from stretchy, super-soft material, so don’t panic if you’re way taller than me. They should still fit.
The socks fit well, too. I wear a size 9.5 (which is totally unfair since I’m so short), and it’s hard to find socks that don’t cut off my circulation or smash my toes together. PACT Organic socks have a nice stretch that helps them slide easily over my feet and ankles, and I’m very thankful for that. I’ll be wearing these cute socks with my boots when fall and winter return.
Oh, and let’s talk about the camisole with the built-in shelf bra. I pulled it out of the package and was like, Yeah…no way is this gonna fit me. Well, I was wrong. The shirt stretches, and it’s perfect for layering. I also like to sleep in it.
I had the same initial reaction to the bra. Without getting too personal, let’s just say I recently returned 10 sports bras to Target because they didn’t fit. This one fits perfectly, and it fits true to size. As a bonus, you can breathe and move while you’re wearing it. That’s always a plus, right?
