Eco Chick Giveaway: PACT Underwear Stars and Stripes for a Green Fourth of July!

I’m a big fan of PACT underwear – not only are they supercute and made from organic cotton, but each pair benefits an awesome charity that’s usually associated with the design on the undies. They are high quality and yes, they make men’s boxers and briefs too (in fact my boyfriend loves them so much, he is part of their underwear-of-the-month club!)


“The real political power this election year is in each of us to be the true leaders in our communities, and impart the change we’d like to see in our country,” said Jeff Denby, co-creator and Chief Creative Officer at PACT. “As a nation we’re facing uncertain political and financial times, but despite this, positive change is being created by citizens who are doing good work every day. We travelled from Detroit, to Austin, to Portland Oregon and everywhere along the way we found these social entrepreneurs having profound effects on their communities. PACT calls these people Changemakers. This collection is about celebrating these individuals and the spirit of doing good through the things we do every day.”


If you’d like to win a free pair of Pact Fourth of July star socks (like those above), just leave a comment below about what makes you happy on the Fourth. (And we would love it if you would sign up for our twice-monthly newsletter too! But you don’t have to.) You must leave a comment to win. The giveaway is open until midnight on Sunday, July 1, 2012. Good luck!

And check it out! Pact is actually having a big summer sale now, so if your undies are getting ragged, stock up with ethical, colorful, supergraphic undies!
