Scottish sock brand TEKO® debuted its new “REGENERATE ME™” Super Cushion multi-sport socks, made with 100% regenerated ECONYL nylon, at this year’s OutDoor Industry Awards in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The new collection was well-received and earned the grand prize award for the Sustainable Innovations category at the event. The panel of judges praised the nylon-recycling concept and the brand’s effective presentation of the production process behind the functional socks.
TEKO® has partnered with the ECONYL® brand to exclusively produce the world’s first performance sock made with regenerated yarn coming from pre- and post-consumer waste. This summer, TEKO® will promote the new collection and their “REGENERATE ME™” pilot project as they ask retailers to commit to their reclaiming program. TEKO® is proposing socks to be returned after a year’s use in exchange for a new pair to encourage end-of-life regeneration.
