While looking for a skateboard for my nephew’s birthday I ran across Super Green Boards.

They are dedicated to bringing the cleanest technology to longboarding.

Bamboo:
The worlds fasting growing SuperGreen Plant, It takes only 5 years for a stalk to mature compared to 100 for maple. It’s an excellent converter of CO2, converting more than 8 times that of trees. It is also 17% harder than standard Maple, making this one excellent material for Longboards.

Glue:
SuperGreen Boards uses a very low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) epoxy to laminate the boards. Currently technologies are being developed in soy polymers which will revolutionize the green Movement.

Fiberglass:
They are currently testing a fiberglass alternative made from finely woven strands of bamboo.
