We launched Arbor in 1995 with our snowboard line, and a dialog about our focus on sustainability, and its importance to snowboarding. We were the first to replace the standard plastic top, with responsibly sourced wood veneer, significantly improving performance. We pioneered the use of bamboo, bio-plastic, and other recycled, reclaimed, and renewable alternatives. For over two decades we’ve turned rider-oriented design into the highest quality, hand-crafted snowboarding products possible, while drastically minimizing our impact on the planet.
Since day one, a portion of the sales proceeds has been reinvested in reforestation and forest conservation, which has allowed us to plant more trees over the years than we used to produce the boards.
