World’s First Compostable Clothing Brand KENT Lands Deal on Live Season Premiere of Shark Tank

 

The California-based Basics Brand Pitched to the Sharks Friday Night

KENT, the world’s first verified compostable clothing brand, was the first company to secure a deal on the live season premiere of Shark Tank.

In a whirlwind bidding war, KENT received offers from four Sharks before landing a deal of $200,000 for 15% of the company with Daymond John, CEO, and Founder of FUBU. Stacy and Jeff Grace, the husband and wife duo behind KENT, chose Daymond to leverage his experience in the fashion industry.

“When Daymond jumped back in with a deal, we were ecstatic. He’s an industry icon and has had so much success growing mission-driven companies like ours,” said Jeff.

KENT tackles two major problems in fashion – landfill waste and plastics – focusing on the untapped space of undergarments. 85% of textiles today are made from plastic fibers and 11 million pounds of under-apparel go into landfills and incinerators daily in the USA.

KENT’s underwear is LA Compost verified and designed to break down in 90 days. Made with a proprietary blend of plant-based materials, including GOTS-certified organic pima cotton, KENT eliminates the need for petrochemical-based fabrics.

“I saw an opportunity to rethink how undergarments are made when I realized all of my underwear were made of synthetic materials,” said Stacy, “That’s when the idea of KENT was born – a line of thoughtfully designed 100% organic, vegan and compostable underwear. I see composting as a natural recycling process. With cities like New York and LA rolling out curbside composting this year, we see composting becoming mainstream in America as a natural solution to landfill waste, for fashion and beyond.”

KENT Founder and CEO, Stacy Grace, has over a decade of experience in sustainable fashion, where she’s worked with brands like TOMS, Wrangler, and Timberland. She’s a Tory Burch Fellow and winner of the Canadian Arts and Fashion Sustainability Award.

Stacy’s husband, Jeff Grace, is the CMO at KENT and comes with experience in advertising and comedy, which showed during their humorous Shark Tank performance. Jeff is best known for his creative work at Leo Burnett, where he helped grow Altoids from a small regional brand in Seattle to the #1 selling mint in the category.

KENT offers a line of men’s and women’s briefs, tees, and reusable totes.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily.
