Introducing both apparel and footwear that features our recycled technical material: PRIMEBLUE & PRIMEGREEN PRIMEBLUE. This special capsule is just part of our commitment to continue to innovate in the area of sustainability until we reach our goal to use only recycled polyester in all of our products by 2024. The products featured include polos, layering pieces and shorts, along with our new CODECHAOS21 footwear. 

PRIMEBLUE is our high-performance recycled material that’s made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. These plastics were intercepted from beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing them from polluting our oceans. We took that plastic waste and turned it into a performance solution. Every day, the equivalent of 1440 dump trucks of plastic waste enter our oceans, so this is one small way we can keep some waste out of our oceans and use it for purposes.
