WOOD BY-PRODUCT: all wood by-product created during the production of our skateboards is reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies. This allows Arbor to stretch an important resource, while helping to reduce the strain on landfills and forestlands.
Sustainably Sourced Hardrock Maple Plys - Maple provides the best blend of durability and light-weight performance. It's also redially available and affordable, allowing us to offer a price point that is uncommonly low for an eco-product.
Bamboo Power Ply - Bamboo is a remarkably sustainable material. By adding it as a power-generating deck-side ply we not only give our skates a super clean, Zen flavor - but also provide our customers with improved return and lasting durability.
Recycled Glass - Crushed recycled glass is used in our clear re-grip to replace highly processed grip tapes - allows the natural grain to remain visible, while providing better performance than the silica bead-based alternatives.
Water-Based Finishes - All Arbor skates are produced using a water-based sanding sealer and final finish as the best way to help protect the air we all breath, especially when skating…
Recycled Plastic Risers - All Arbor completes are shipped with recycled plastic risers, which helps both Arbor and our customers reduce our reliance on petroleum and contribution to land fills.
Reclaimed Wood By-product - all wood by-product created during the production of our skates is reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies, which helps stretch a key resource, while reducing the strain on land fills and forests.
Since 1995, Arbor’s designs have been ecologically based, and for most of that time, the only environmentally friendly alternative available. Through the years, a lot of people have looked at what they do and thought - “tree-huggers.” They never fought the label too much - after all, the goal from the start was to do right by the planet. Yet, anyone who expected us fit the stereotype, was in for a surprise. Arbor is about riding - and a modern approach to environmental thinking; an approach that, today, is being embraced by the surf/skate/snow industry as a whole. Funny how times have changed.
