The health of riders and the environment is our priority, and our product efforts reflect that. We strive to build the most durable product, reduce raw material usage, increase safe chemistry, and improving emissions quality.
bluesign® is the leading standard for textiles that are guaranteed to meet the highest standards for the environment, factory workers and consumers. We start with the safest chemicals and materials strictly approved by scientists. We then make our goods at natural resource-efficient factories that are fully inspected to not waste water and give off only clean air and water emissions. We want to get to 100% bluesign® and are proud that we are getting close.
Responsibly Sourced Down
In an effort to improve animal welfare in the apparel and outerwear industry, we have moved to 100% responsibly sourced down. In order to source down responsibly, we request that our suppliers audit all the way back to the parent farms where the birds are raised to first produce eggs, and follow it through to the manufacturing of the final product. This validation process is moderated by a third party, ensuring that every feather originates from ethically treated ducks and geese.
Sustainably Harvested Wood
Wood snowboard cores are one of the most important materials in our snowboards, so we took the steps to fully certify our supply chain to ensure that 100% of our snowboard cores are made from responsibly harvested wood that meets the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC).
We set out to reduce our packaging by 25% over three years and while we didn’t quite hit our target, we have made some huge improvements that saved hundreds of thousands of pounds of paper. We have also moved to a policy requiring all internal teams to specify packaging that can be recycled and has a minimum of 80% post-consumer recycled paper.
