Arbor - An Environmentally Conscious Snowboard Company

Arbor is one of my favorite board companies. Not only do they produce a wide range of durable, functional, and beautiful boards they have been working to be more environmentally friendly for over 15 years. Their boards are made of sustainable woods like koa, poplar, and bamboo. Each year the company donates 5% of its profits to an organization such as: The Nature Conservatory, The Rain Forest Action Network, and American Forests. In addition, they are also working with True Offsets to help restore forest lands and offset more carbon emissions then they are actually responsible for, making Arbor a “less-than-zero carbon emitter”. All of their advertising is printed with soy based inks which make them easier to recycle. And they also buy wind credits to help offset the electricity used at their headquarters in Venice, CA. If you’re in the market for a new board add Arbor to your list!
