Though we often find ourselves daydreaming of carefree powder days, the realization of environmental stewardship has become a priority in the Ride office, causing us to focus on a greener way of living and working. From the engineering table all the way to the home front, Ride employees are encouraged to bare a keen eye for opportunities to protect mother earth, incentivizing bike programs, carpools, and the use of post-consumer recycled materials in our product packaging and paper consumption.
Our snowboard packaging is extremely minimal and the packaging we do use is fully recyclable shrink-wrap. We use a 100% naturally derived biodegradable wax formula on all of our boards. Almost every Ride snowboard uses full swap die-cut bases, which eliminates a significant amount of waste that otherwise would go to landfills and does not require any inks or solvents like many standard bases. Ride’s Membrain® top sheet technology cuts out more than half of the plastic used on traditional top sheets, and our Hempbrain™ top sheet eliminates the traditional plastic top sheet altogether.
Our boot packaging utilizes paper separators and a recycled cardboard foot form, both of which are consumer recyclable. All Ride boots feature 30% recycled EVA backing in the shell. A new approach to boot design, Ride’s exclusive Phy-Top 2.0™ construction utilizes fewer individual parts, less glue and creates less waste by bringing into play the specially crafted 100% phylon molded unibody.
All of Ride's binding baseplates and heelcups are made from roughly 50% recycled aluminum, and much like your empty beer cans, are 100% consumer recyclable.
Our outerwear hangtags are made from 50% recycled material and the catalog you are reading right now is FSC-Certified, composed of 30% post consumer waste. As we continue to develop new technologies, refine products and improve processes, reducing our impact will be a consideration each step of the way.
