Another action sports leader in the development of eco friendly products is BambooSK8. Bamboo SK8 manufacturers Skateboard decks out of renewable bamboo. These decks are lightweight and stronger than maple decks. According to BambooSk8 ‘the process allows the molecular fibers of the bamboo to be pressed under intense pressure creating supreme stiffness and resilience within the deck. The combination of these features creates a highly responsive deck with a long lasting pop, while producing absolutely zero splinters.’
What I really like- is what they are trying to achieve ‘zero waste and cradle to cradle manufacturing. In fact the proudly display their carbon footprint on their website;
Other Green Factors:
- Use water based glue= no toxic VOC’s released
- Production Waste is recycled into other bamboo products (saves landfills)
- Maximized container loads( saving transportation pollution)
- Donate broken and worn out boards/decks to low income families, charities or local artists to be reused.
- 15 of profits are given back to charities
- 100% of office furniture came from Craigslist (reuse and recycle)
- Recycle program in office and homes and try not to print.
