185: Is your Closet as Organic as your Kitchen?
with Brendad Synnott
Brendan Synnott has been an entrepreneur for quite some time. After owning multiple food-industry brands, Brendan felt the need to dig into an industry that even eco-conscious people don't tend to think too much about; clothing.
With the fashion industry being one of the top polluters in the world, Brendan decided to tackle the HUGE problem of "fast fashion" by founding Pact -- the world's first guilt-free fashion brand made with organic cotton in a certified Fair-Trade factory!

We’ve all heard it a thousand times:
Change can be tough. But at Pact, we don’t buy it.
The best ingredients make the best clothes and products.
The people who make the clothes are as important as the people who wear them.

Plain and simple, to create quality products for people in a more conscious and ethical way.

More About Brendan and Survivor (via CBS):
Brendan Synnott is all about playing the game. Whether it is in front of a classroom teaching entrepreneurial success or taking part in outdoor extreme adventures, he knows how to read the odds.
Raised by a single mom in Connecticut, Brendan pulled himself up by the bootstraps to be the co-founder and CEO of Bear Naked, a natural food brand that was recently acquired by a major corporation. Despite his financial success, he is not all about the money.
Success to him, however, is about more than simply creating, building and selling a thriving business; it's about hard work, passion, fun and surrounding yourself with the best people.
Synnott has always wanted to combine his love of the outdoors with his skills as a leader. In school, he played both football and baseball, and still stays active as much as possible. He loves to compete and says it's a driving force, even in business. It will especially be a driving force on Survivor.
