This innovative company will be celebrating the completion of their 30 day crowdfunding Indiegogo campaign to raise awareness for maple deforestation, evolve the skateboarding industry and expand their eco-friendly product line.
Bamboo Skateboards consists of a team of environmentally mindful entrepreneurs and skateboard enthusiasts who manufacture high-quality decks and longboards made of sustainable bamboo from managed forests. In addition to their groundbreaking and sturdy skateboards, they are producing a new line of ecological t-shirts made from discarded plastic bottles and X-ray films combined with recycled cotton to create a perfectly smooth, super durable and extremely comfortable fabric without toxic chemicals or dyes.
“Our goal is to make an apparel line that not only looks cool, but is also made from a sustainable material that parallels the company’s eco-friendly stance,” said Wyatt Gregson, CEO of Bamboo Skateboards.
