PACT is taking fair trade to places it’s never been before: your everyday wardrobe. The Boulder, Colo.-based apparel-basics purveyor announced that it’s releasing one of the largest fair-trade-certified, organic-cotton garment collections by an American apparel brand to date. Comprising 78 different items across 19 products styles, including leggings, camisoles, T-shirts, and the brand’s signature undies, the line also features the first-ever baby clothes to receive Fair Trade U.S.A.’s seal of approval.

PACT’s collection, which is certified by Control Union according to standards maintained by Fair Trade U.S.A., is produced in a factory in India that the company says is a “leader in producing socially and environmentally responsible apparel.”

For every item purchased, PACT will contribute a percentage of sales to a worker-controlled fund that encompasses disaster relief for factory workers, scholarships for workers’ children, infrastructure improvements in the their local communities, and cash bonuses.

The certification empowers workers by “putting more money directly into their hands to create access to a better standard of living,” Jeff Denby, founder of PACT, says in a statement.

“With Fair Trade U.S.A. as our partner, we can follow a standard and credibly say that our products are Certified as Fair Trade,” Denby adds. “I believe that, as a brand, our greatest opportunity for social impact is to empower the people who actually make our clothing. Fair Trade U.S.A. is the ideal partner to empower worker committees through the fair-trade process and ensure that the funds are being used to maximize social impact.”
