If you’re a die hard skater but seek eco friendly toys to play with, have you heard of Sk8?
This sustainable maker of premium skateboards and decks makes them out of bamboo which we know is a renewable resource as it grows fast and is extremely durable, making it an ideal material for many products including skateboards.
BambooSK8′s decks are made of three and four layers, or ply, of a certain ideal strain of bamboo that is cured a secret way (BambooSK8 is very guarded about the exact source of their bamboo). The boards are strong, since bamboo has a higher weight-to-strength ratio than maple — it takes 1639 pounds of pressure to bend bamboo versus 1450 pounds for hard maple.
