Atayne takes a new point of view towards creating better people with better performance on a better planet by producing high performance athletic gear made from trash. Atayne's performance wear is made from recycled polyester from plastic bottles and cocona (activated carbon) from coconut shells. Men's and Women's wear come in two designs: "reduce. reuse. recycle. run" and "run hard. tread lightly" in both t-shirts and long sleeves. The clothing offers moisture wicking, UV protecting, odor controlling, and temperature regulating components. Atayne is aware of their environmental footprint but the company wants to "always beat yesterday" continuing to take strides to lessen their impact. To improve performance, products help wearers perform at their best, make a healthy profit, and drive a positive change in the industry. To improve people, Atayne provides a world-class work environment, partners with similar businesses, avoids harmful chemicals and materials, and provides support to local and global communities. To improve the planet, Atayne operates under a model that reduces energy, water, harmful chemicals, emissions and waste, eliminates the use of counterfeit materials, and supports and promotes environmental preservation. With clothing starting at $38, Atayne is offering a $5 cash back to customers this summer who donate used polyester-based performance garments.
