Synergy organic clothing is made with Certified Organic Cotton and other eco-friendly fibres. Using these materials reduces pesticide usage, damage to fresh water resources, and lowers health risks for global farming communities. Synergy adheres to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). They work with the only GOTS certified factory in Nepal as well as GOTS certified fabric mills in India.

According to the World Bank, 17-20% of industrial water pollution comes from textile dyeing and treatment. Synergy only uses low impact dyes and minimize finishes, which significantly decreases their water pollution footprint before, during, and after production.

Synergy supports the Waterwheel Foundation. Waterwheel is a non-profit organization created by the brand Phish as a way to raise funds for smaller pre-selected non-profits in each community that Phish visits. Waterwheel typically focuses on organizations benefitting women and children, clean water, food banks, urban gardening, and more.
