You don’t need us to tell you that snowboarding is heavily reliant on snow and cold weather. So we don’t blame you for thinking, ” Yeah…duh! Try telling me something I don’t know!” Well the real reason we bring it up is to hopefully inform you of something that you don’t know. Something that will hopefully help to keep cold weather cold enough for snowboarding for centuries and centuries to come.
In an effort to battle against the threats of global warming that are affecting the world-over, Quiksilver will be introducing a new “Eco-Friendly” line of snowboarding gear beginning in 2008-2009. The new line of snowboarding gear has been designed creatively with well-known Champion boarder Travis Rice. The new line of Eco-Friendly snowboard wear contains many environmentally friendly technologies that offer the same quality product without damaging the Earth.
We won’t go into great detail about the new line, but here are some of the Eco-friendly highlights of the new line from Quiksilver:
• Biodegradable TPU Laminate
• Nanosphere Finish
• Organic Cotton
• Non-Toxic Dyes
• Recycled PET
We invite you to you learn more about the new line from Quiksilver by reading through this article from the Environmental News Network. We think you’ll enjoy it, and hopefully it opens your eyes to a new wave of snowboard gear designed to help keep snowboarding alive.
