how we do it
The majority of waste that enters the ocean each year is plastic—and it’s here to stay. That’s because, unlike other waste, it doesn't biodegrade. Instead, it stays in the Ocean for a millennium, polluting our beaches, entangling marine life. So we aim to do something about it. We collect and reuse this plastic andgive it a second life.
WE COLLECT PLASTIC WASTE
With our partner Econyl, we collect and reuse waste, such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and plastic, from landfills and oceans all over the world. The waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover the nylon.
IT’S SENT TO A REGENERATION PLANT
At a 'High Tech' regeneration plant, it undergoes a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity, which means the regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.
A SPECIAL DYEING PROCESS
In our dyeing process we twist our yarn, which adds elasticity to it, this gives our socks amazing stretch and recovery properties, which also makes our socks more durable and feel more comfortable.
OUR SOCKS ARE MADE ON THE BEST KNITTING MACHINES
Our socks are made using special high quality cylinder knitting machines, holding 200 very thin knitting needles (1/50th of an inch thick), which makes them more durable than other socks. Also, providing a smoother feel, greater stretch and improved fit, preventing movement in shoes.
WE COAT OUR SOCKS WITH AN ANTI-ODOR COATING
The Polygiene anti-odor coating, means you can wear them more and wash them less. All Rockay Performance wear has this unique Stay Fresh Technology, preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria. You simply let the Garment dry and it can be used again and again.PreviousNext
