    Look for the RSPO label on foods, they have certified sustainable palm oil . Check your bread too. Nearly all has palm oil apart from a very few.

    Just doing a bit of browsing. Given their logo and brand values I presumed Element would have sustainable hardware offerings.

    Nothing in decks.

    https://us.elementbrand.com/mens/shop/skateboard-decks

    Nothing in wheels.

    One tee made of sustainable cotton on sale.

    One style of hoodie in partially recycled fabric.

    Pretty lame when you think about what they market themselves as.

    They're sustainable because they don't pay their pros.

    Only recycled wheels I can find were from Satori. Awesome concept but probably too expensive and lower quality than an equivalent new wheel from a Chinese factory.

    I'm trying to cut choc down but struggling. Cadbury and Mondelez are bad palm oil cunts but I love their choc and Oreos so much.
    I am a cunt.

    Wow, what a load of shit. I thought they one thing, apart from Bam, they had was that they were sustainable or something.

    Are Organika still a thing? If so they should be the Whole Foods of skateboarding
    What a ridiculous clusterfuck of totally uncool jokers.

    Yeah but what I think is weird that 'sustainable' or 'ethical' has to be marketed as 'veggie dreadlocks'.

    Why aren't the mainstream companies backing it? Is it a death blow for cool? Is it totally unmarketable? You'd think if anyone was going to stop sucking the teat of unsustainable mass consumption for profit it would be skate brands.

    After a bit more research and less work done today. I think Habitat have done some bamboo boards in the past but i cant seem to find anyone that still has them in stock.

    I think for a board company to dip their toe in the water must be such a risk really. Every time someone tires to do something different it seems to bomb.

    Go around a shop and read the labels on the back and about 70% of stuff has it.

    kettle chips im eating with my lunch, no palm oil, they are the only crisps i eat, i dont eat dairy so dont each chocolate. think ill start paying more attention to palm oil because eating plant based and wife being gluten free and trying to cut out plastics means shopping doesn't take long enough as it is.

    These look a bit pap. But they seem cheap. Does it defeat the object of being ethical if you have to get it shipped half way around the world?

    It looks like some Welsh company called Oath were using them at one point but i cant find anything about them.

    I think i'll wait until A Third Foot start making them.
    I could be wrong, but I don't think ATF produces their own boards anymore.

    Really. poop. I've always tried to buy their stuff as its pretty local to me. (The boards were always a bit chunky and heavy tho)

    According to their website they are "the UK's only skateboard manufacture, which produces hand crafted boards from construction to print"
    Although I know of at least one bloke who does tiny runs of high-quality DIY boards in the UK (@manifest_skateboards) so that's not strictly true
