What is Anact?
Anact is short for “an act”. The simple act of creating impact. My simple act was developing a hemp-based towel that is good for ALL people and the planet.
When you buy a towel, you're already taking action and making a difference. We hope you take it a step further and that each time you use the Anact towels you’re inspired to take simple acts to create impact too.
In fact, just by purchasing ONE Anact bath towel, you save 526 days of drinking water!
Our goal is to disrupt the textile industry and show that you can be sustainable without a sacrifice. We believe that by showing the increasing demand for sustainable products, (especially those made out of hemp) that we can create jobs for U.S. farmers to grow hemp and manufacture here in the United States.
Why do we want to bring hemp to the U.S.?
Cotton uses around 50% more water to grow than hemp, and is considered one of the dirtiest crops. Meaning that it requires many pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides to grow. Hemp is a weed, and so it not only requires little water, pesticides, insecticides and herbicides to grow. Hemp is also biostatic, meaning it resists the growth of bacteria, which makes it an environmentally sustainable and healthy option for you, the farmer and the planet.
