Starboard Plants One Mangrove For Each Board Produced
On average every Starboard board is responsible for emitting 100 kg of CO2 from the extraction of the raw materials to the shipping of the boards from our factory.
To offset these emissions Starboard plants 1 mighty mangrove tree per board.
During the first 20 years of its life this mangrove will absorb 1000 kg of CO2, 10 times the amount released during board production and distribution.
Our mangrove trees are planted by the Worldview International Foundation in Myanmar. So far we have planted 1,000,000 mangroves. One for every board we have produced as well as extras to offset our company carbon footprint 10 times over the footprints of events we have supported.
Within the next 20 years all of Starboard’s CO2 emissions since 1994 will be absorbed, and much more!
We calculate our carbon footprint yearly and give out a report for everyone to read, aiming to be completely transparent about our impact on the planet. Our whole carbon footprint is offset by the mangroves’ unique carbon storage abilities.
Whatever board you’re riding you’re helping the environment and you’re part of the team.
