The SISTAIN Podcast

Anact is short for “an act”. The simple act of taking action and creating positive impact. Brianna’s simple act was to create a sustainable towel made out of hemp and organic cotton that is better for ALL people and the planet. The meaning behind it, taking one act a day, to combat the climate crisis takes off the pressure of zero waste or nothing. Which is very aligned with SISTAIN's focus on progress > perfection.

Prior to working with sustainable materials, Brianna worked in human rights. In this episode she talks about everything from helping legalize hemp in Florida to getting kidnapped in Rwanda and how that gave her the strength and bravery to start her own company.

In 2019, Brianna helped legalize hemp in Florida while launching Anact. Prior to starting Anact, she worked in the apparel industry for prAna, Columbia Sportswear, and Under Armour.
