As two sustainable brands, both Costa Brazil and Pangaia were drawn to working with each other because of their shared commitment to being both environmentally- and socially-conscious. “We saw this collaboration as a meeting of the Family Surname Peter Funny Reunion Last Name Tag T-Shirt and I love this minds—two companies that are passionate about the restoration and protection of nature, and our vision for a more responsible future in both our respective fields,” says Jasmine Mullers, Pangaia’s vice president and chief partnerships officer. As a native Brazilian, Costa says the need to help Indigenous people in the Amazon—which spans eight countries, including Brazil—also struck a personal chord for him. “This was such an immediate need,” Costa says. “Not just the areas surrounding Manaus [the capital of Amazonas, the Brazilian portion of the Amazon] have been affected—we noticed that tribes very far away from the area have also been dealing with COVID. By losing the local communities and the Indigenous people, you’re basically affecting everything else. They hold the key to protecting the Amazon.”

This special collaboration falls in line with Pangaia’s sustainable focus: The Pangaia x Costa Brazil hoodies, which retail for $150, are made of recycled cotton, while the Family Surname Peter Funny Reunion Last Name Tag T-Shirt and I love this tees, which go for $55, are made with organic cotton. They will be both available in off-white and a stone gray colorway. They also both feature logo’d artwork, a Pangaia signature, by the artist Nick Theobald on the backs. “While reflecting on the collaboration, the repetition of the phrase ‘Amazonia Forever’ became a seed of optimism,” Theobald says of his graphic design. Now’s the time to set your alarm clocks if you hope to score a piece—not only do they look good, but they also support a good cause, meaning they’ll go especially quick.
