Völkl win EuroSIMA Ecological Innovation Prize

The Cashew

Völkl Snowboards won the Ecological Innovation Prize of the EuroSIMA Industry Awards this year with their eco-friendly snowboards.

The boards Cashew, Yavana (2010), and Vice SQD (2011) stand for ecologically sensitive production. These snowboards have a tear-resistant hemp/linen top instead of a plastic topsheet and also have flexible wooden sidewalls instead of normal plastic ones. This alone saves more than 400 gram of plastic for every board. Additionally the use of synthetic resin and other toxic materials were reduced to a minimum. Even the base is more ecological now. It consists of 80% recycled base material and even the steel edges are made of renewable resources.
