Earth Matters.

Earth matters is a regular window into everything that drives us at PANGAIA. From the motivation behind our latest material capsules and the impact that our innovations can make, to what inspires our restlessness in designing a more Earth-positive future.

A plant-based movement.

This week we launched the next generation of PANGAIA Activewear—3.0. It marks our next step towards fully plant based, comfortable apparel that’s designed to move. Most activewear on the market is made from fossil fuel-based synthetic materials that are cost-efficient, widely accessible and easy to manufacture—but these benefits come with a cost. They are created with high amounts, if not entirely, of petrochemicals, which are linked to water poisoning, air and land pollution and global warming.


In a report published last year, the Changing Markets Foundation analyzed nearly 50 leading fashion brands and found they are “knee-deep in fossil fashion” and are “continuing to ignore growing plastic pollution, stemming from their addiction to synthetic fibers.” We believe that the fashion industry does not need to be one of the leading causes of climate change. By exploring and utilizing alternatives like EVO® nylon, made from castor beans, as well as a first-to-market, part plant-based Creora® elastane—we know that long-lasting, Earth-positive change is possible, and we hope all brands join us on our journey.

“A standing tree is worth more than thousands of logs.”

Brazil’s new president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has pledged to end deforestation in the Amazon. In his victory speech, he said, “Let’s fight for zero deforestation,” and announced that “Brazil will fight for a living Amazon; a standing tree is worth more than thousands of logs.” This news is a huge win for the fight against climate change, as the Amazon biome nears a critical tipping point. In a recent report from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF)*, around 18% of the Amazon’s forests are lost and another 17% are highly degraded, with threats to the Amazon worsening in recent years—impacting the lives of millions of indigenous people, and the forest’s wildlife and ecosystem.


Forests are ancient, complex ecosystems with multiple benefits for climate, biodiversity and society. That’s why we launched the Tomorrow Tree Fund, powered by Milkywire, to expand our tree planting efforts and support reforestation and conservation initiatives all over the world. Learn more about our mission and how we recently hit our 1,000,000 tree milestone below.
