Jones Snowboards on Natural Evolution, Sustainable Materials & Social Responsibility

Natural Evolution

Without winter, without snow, Jones Snowboards would not exist. We are well aware of our impact on the environment and are dedicated to minimizing it in whatever ways we can through our products and business practices. Continuously researching and testing new, sustainable materials is an important part of Jones Snowboards and wherever possible we encompass them in our designs. It is a quickly evolving field and one we intend to be at the forefront of forever.

Base Line Materials

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood cores - Select wood that comes from forests managed in ways that will ensure their protection.

Linseed fiber and Basalt - Eliminating toxic fiberglass and resins

Recycled base materials - Flipflop
 base technique, eliminates up to 50% of waste from traditional base die-cuts

Sustainable side walls - Made out of sustainable wood reducing waste

topsheets - Eliminating 1 pound of plastic per board

Protect Our Winters

POW was formed in 2007 by Professional Snowboarder, Jeremy Jones to unite the winter sports community and focus their collective efforts towards initiatives that will directly impact climate change.

1% for the Planet

Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has inspired members of the business community to contribute 1% of sales to environmental groups around the world. In return, this growing alliance of companies is given the opportunity not only to see their self-worth rise.
