Circular Economy: Qore Performance and Dutch Bros Coffee Arizona launch REGEN Program for Used Safety Vest and Cooling Backpack Equipment


At Qore Performance, we’re thrilled to introduce REGEN, our exciting new practical sustainability initiative! REGEN is led by Dutch Bros Coffee Arizona with other enterprise customers also participating. Together, we are committed to extending the life of our products and reducing landfill waste by recylcing/up-cycling them to create an opportunity for more Americans to Build A Superhuman Future® for themselves and their organizations. Let’s dive into how we’re using easy, practical and impactful sustainability to advance our vision for Building A Superhuman Future.®

What is REGEN by Qore Performance?

REGEN is our innovative program designed to breathe new life into gently used Qore Performance products. Instead of ending up in a landfill, these items are inspected, refurbished, and prepared for a second round of service. It’s a practical and eco-friendly way to keep high-quality gear in use for longer.

Why Partner with Dutch Bros Coffee Arizona?

Dutch Bros Coffee Arizona, already one of our longest-standing and most innovative customers, approached us with a simple yet powerful idea: upgrade their gear to care for their team by making sure they always have the best tools while ensuring old items don’t go to waste. Their commitment to supporting their team combined with the resourcefulness commonly found at scrappy startups aligns perfectly with our values, making them an ideal partner for this initiative.

How Does REGEN Work?

  1. Collection: Existing enterprise customers send us their fleet of gently used IceAge Ecosystem products.
  2. Inspection: Each item is carefully inspected and refurbished if necessary.
  3. Recycling: Reconditioned products and made available for purchase through our REGEN program.

Above: Revive. Restore. Reequip. REGEN seeks to proliferate thermoregulation safety equipment more than ever before.


Why Choose REGEN Products?

  • Eco-Friendly: Reduce waste and support sustainability.
  • High Quality: Get like-new Qore Performance products at a fraction of the cost. 
  • Community Impact: Contribute to a greener planet and a safer community.

What does REGEN stand for?
REGEN stands for "regenerate," reflecting our commitment to giving products a new life and reducing waste.

Who should purchase from the REGEN program?
REGEN is perfect for organizations who are looking for high-performance and environmental inoculation safety solutions, but who may not have the same budgets as our enterprise customers. Churches, community groups, youth centers, public school districts, and non-profits are all great examples of customer groups who should consider REGEN.

How can I purchase REGEN products?
Visit our REGEN Collection here to explore and purchase high-quality, previously-owned, refurbished products through the REGEN program.

Why should I choose refurbished products?
Refurbished products are a great way to enjoy top shelf innovation, while preventing waste to meaningfully contribute to environmental sustainability. The trade-off is that you don't get 100% brand-new product since all some REGEN product is used/pre-owned, but it is still functional.

What types of products are included in the REGEN program?
The program focuses on Qore Performance Safety products, such as those from the IceAge Ecosystem, which have been carefully inspected and refurbished.

How does REGEN benefit the environment?
REGEN reduces landfill waste, conserves resources, and lowers the carbon footprint associated with producing new products.

Do I get a discount or a credit for sending gear in for REGEN?
No. Our goal here is Building A Superhuman Future® through resourcefulness, individual empowerment, and waste prevention. We set the resale prices in our REGEN program to cover our shipping and reconditioning costs to maximize the total available market of people who yearn for Building A Superhuman Future® for themselves, their families, and/or their organizations.

How does REGEN work?
Easy! Once your gently used IceAge Ecosystem fleet has been approved for REGEN, we'll work with you (including paying for shipping your REGEN products back to us as well as upgrading your IceAge Ecosystem fleet) to arrange packing and shipping back to our Knoxville, TN HQ2 for reconditioning and resale. You make room for your IceAge Ecosystem upgrades, care for your team, and save the planet all in one move without incurring any costs since we pay the shipping!

Can other companies participate in the REGEN program?
We’re always open to new partnerships! Contact us here to learn how your company can join the REGEN initiative.
