Bamboo Skateboards: The industry's green brand
It is located in the beautiful Rainbow, in northern San Diego County, California. In 2008, this brand became aware that the maple skateboard craze was having a destructive effect on primary forests: it takes 60 years for a maple tree to mature enough to harvest. That's when he decides to take on a big challenge: to create an eco-friendly alternative to maple decks that would provide superior durability, pop, and performance, all at a competitive cost.
Bamboo begins to be the best alternative to take care of the planet, without losing the quality of the skateboards that were being built. Mainly because bamboo is naturally shock absorbent to help prevent the board from cracking. Buying a board from Bamboo Skateboards has many benefits for you and the planet. Check out the following:
- Bamboo skateboards are lighter and stronger than maple skateboards. So, you get more "pop" when performing tricks and refining your skills.
- Nothing works better than bamboo.
- Bamboo absorbs impact better than maple. Your Bamboo skateboard will resist cracking and provide better performance for much longer than maple. Bamboo not only helps us create a better board, it is also a socially responsible choice.
- For every Bamboo skateboard you buy, a tree will be planted in North America, South America, Asia and Africa.
What strikes us most about this brand is the ''green'' industry that is generated around it, because they care about the environment, getting their products only from bamboo is easily replenished, because it is the fastest-growing plant in the world. There can be some species of bamboo growing up to 2.91 feet in a single day, which means it grows almost 1.5 inches every hour!
This brand became the greenest alternative in the industry, as their responsibility to the environment makes them plant trees all over the world.
They say the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
But how does Bamboo achieve this? Well, they say that behind great achievement, there is a great team and that working as a team will be much easier. With that in mind, they managed to reach a strategic agreement with One Tree Planted, who, from all over Vermont, work with amazing reforestation organizations around the world that need financial support to help them plant more trees. Most of their projects help with wildfire and flood restoration, as well as job creation, community building, and habitat protection for biodiversity.
This organization collects donations for each project and sends the funds to reforestation partners who are screened to ensure an 80-90% tree survival rate. Depending on the project, they choose the best species of trees to plant and work with local communities to plant them. Amazing, isn't it?
