Shaun Thomas selected Bamboo Skateboards because of their decisions to manufacture their boards with an endless renew-ability resource, Bamboo. It not only aids in creating better boards but is also a socially responsible choice with it’s minimal effect on the environment.
When skateboarding surpassed flooring, as one of the major contributors to maple deforestation, Bamboo Skateboard’s mission became to explore other ways of making skateboards. Bamboo prevents soil erosion, requires no toxic fertilizers, and is lighter and stronger than steel itself! All Bamboo skateboards and longboards are harvested from managed farms. Bamboo is a type of grass: cut it down and it grows back stronger than before. It’s not endangered. Managed bamboo-farms have a minimal effect on the environment. Since 2008, Bamboo has gained a loyal following of eco-conscious fans around the world. Bamboo has grown in recognition and popularity in skate shops across the world for our innovation, mission, and quality.
