What is Anact?
Anact was built as a movement to inspire you, me and everyone in our community to take simple acts to create impact. One of the ways in which we do that is to make a towel better for all people and the planet and remind ourselves of the power that we have each time we use that towel.
Now more than ever at Anact, we believe that we each have the power to change the narrative of the story that we want to tell today and every day because in the words of @yung_pueblo when we harm another we harm ourselves.
We want to be that wind beneath your sails to remind you that we're working towards a more harmonious world every day too. When you buy a towel, you're already taking action and making a difference. In fact, just by purchasing ONE Anact bath towel, you save 526 days of drinking water! What will you #anact today?
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.
