The Baseline Midlayer: Made With Recycled Coffee Grounds
Spent coffee grounds are mixed and melted down with recycled plastic bottles to create the fibers for our innovative Baseline Midlayer. The result is a midlayer packed with features and perfect for all your upcoming adventures.
From outdoor activities to working from home and everything in between, the Baseline has you covered. This lightweight, midlayer fleece can be used year-round. Whether you’re at your home office, on the slopes, at your local climbing gym, virtual spin class, or doing yoga, the Baseline will become your new go-to layer.
Unlike other fleece garments, the Baseline Midlayer does not shed microplastics when washed. This guilt-free layer saves millions of tiny plastics from contaminating our ecosystems!
Fibers from synthetic fabrics can’t always be caught in filters, especially in manufacturing. By using a this revolutionary fabric, we eliminate the worry of contributing to the microplastic epidemic.
Spent coffee grounds are mixed and melted with recycled plastic bottles, then extruded into the fibers that create the Evolution Hoodie. The process requires minimal resources and utilizes sustainable technologies such as solar power, gray water recycling, and more!
Our partners across the globe have worked for years to perfect the technique of turning coffee into clothes. First, coffee grounds are collected from local shops. Often this is done by employees on their way to work in the morning, so there’s no need to haul in the grounds with trucks that run on fossil fuels! Next, the coffee is dried and the oils are separated out. Often these oils are given more life as soaps, cosmetics, and more. The dried coffee is further ground into nano-sized particles, that are then combined with plastic fibers and turned into cloth!
The Baseline is also made from recycled plastic bottles. Instead of discarded bottles going into the waste stream and often finding their way into oceans, the bottles are shredded into flakes and dried. Those flakes are melted down and extruded through a sieve into small fibers. The coffee is then mixed in to create yarn!
We use a waterless dye method that saves TONS of water. This keeps waste out of water systems, making a safer planet for us all. By using recycled materials, and a waterless dye method, we save thousands of gallons of water during the production process of the Baseline Midlayer.
Because the Baseline is made with coffee, it has antimicrobial properties. Never worry about which mid-layer to wear again-spend more time playing and less time washing!
Play hard and smell great! Because coffee is a naturally odor-absorbing substance, odors are neutralized as you sweat. With coffee embedded directly into the fabric, the odor absorbing properties of the Baseline mid-layer are permanent and will not diminish over time.
Our Baseline layer will never lose that new fleece feeling. Because of its honeycomb fabric structure, this layer will remain in good shape long after your traditional hoodie would start to break down.
The Baseline is designed to be worn wherever you want to wear it. The honeycomb fabric is an extremely versatile material, constructed with microscopic pores that increase its surface area. This means moisture is spread throughout the midlayer and wicked away from your body. This means you stay more comfortable and dryer when using it as a performance piece and that the drying process is accelerated.
Finally, a full zip layer that is stain resistant and repels water but also is lightweight and breathable enough to be used every day. Liquids and stains bounce right off the material, no longer will a spilled drink ruin your day, just brush it off and you’re good to go!
Pack it down inside of its own pocket and keep it stashed in your pack so you’re always prepared with an extra layer. The Baseline Mid- Layer will keep you comfortable on summer nights or act as the perfect addition under a larger jacket on crisp winter days.
Never worry again about losing your valuables! The Baseline Mid – Layer has three hidden zippered pockets so you can safely secure your stash. No matter where life takes you, enjoy peace of mind knowing your phone, wallet, and other belongings will be with you when you arrive. Worry less and explore more!
With additional length, double stitched seams, ergonomic hood and thumbholes, the Baseline will keep you warm for years to come.
Keep your skin healthy from the sand to the slopes! The tiny pores in the fabric trap and block UV rays, turning the Baseline into a chemical-free shield.
The Baseline Mid – Layer is not only functional, but it’s also incredibly lightweight.
Thanks to the efficiency of the Baseline’s honeycomb technology, it weighs a mere 8 Ounces.
