Learn more about Eco index: www.ecoindexbeta.org
The Eco Index uses environmental guidelines, environmental performance indicators, and environmental footprint metrics to assess the impacts within six product life cycle stages: Materials; Packaging; Product Manufacturing and Assembly; Transport and Distribution; Use and Service; and End of Life. A comparative scoring system at the indicator level provides standardized levels of achievement; a data capture tool at the metric level provides a means to collect quantitative data within seven critical “Lenses” (areas of impact): Land Use Intensity, Water, Waste, Biodiversity, Chemistry/Toxics – People, Chemistry/Toxics – Environment, and Energy Use/Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Designed for use by a diverse group of stakeholders from product designers to suppliers, the Eco Index framework is modular, allowing implementation of the tool within the life cycle stages and level of detail appropriate for each company. At present, the Eco Index does not provide a final score or ranking for finished products. However, this may be incorporated as the index undergoes further development. The Eco Index is being built around five guiding principles that separate it from other environmental assessment tools:
2 options – you pick:
I. Download the stencil, print it, cut it and finally spray it.
II. Send a self addressed stamped envelope to us and we’ll send you a few stickers.
BambooSK8 – 3025 Industry St., Suite B, Oceanside, CA 92054
Next, take a creative photo of your stickers or a photo of your stencil spray designs and post them on facebook. You must tag “bamboosk8″ in the photo. Obviously, you must “like” us on facebook.
We will evaluate the top 3 based on creativity and location and then have the community vote on the winner. The winner will win a free bamboosk8 deck and some other top secret goodies.
Contest starts: 09/22/10 & Contest ends: 10/30/10

How was the razer tail? Its not worn down that much yet id say it will last me like two months minimum.
How long did the deck last? Its been 2 weeks and its still in great shape i skate everyday and i think it will last me like two more months.

What style and level of skater skated the deck? I am a street skater that skates buckly!
How was the POP? The pop was great and even other people at some local skateparks enjoyed it.
How was the razer tail? What? I don’t scratch on manuals!?
How long did the deck last? I got my board around the end of june and am still riding the same deck.
How was the performance overall? Overall it is ncredible only problem is it does chip and crack over time.
Would you give a thumbs up to these decks? If not, Why? I would give it thumbs up all the way! Most boards I get break in like a month or two max Bamboo decks last a good three to four months for me. I couldn’t be happier to ride them.
I got my son’s deck in the mail today. I want to tell you that your vision is suburb. Shit, I’m 35 and I’m even thinking about buying a deck from you and starting to skate again after 21 years, because I appreciate your mission so much (plus it’s hard to watch all these little 8-14 year olds in front of my house all the time having so much fun on their boards…oh the good ol’ days). Anyway, I hope you singlehandedly change the entire industry and everyone moves to bamboo. I also hope in your venture, your company ends up squarely on top, because you pioneered the path. Put it this way, you have a client for life and I hope your business prospers so much that you no longer have time to sign your own letters and you’ll be so busy these emails will have to go to email@example.com (not that I don’t appreciate the personal touch!). Thank you for what you do, keep manifesting your beliefs and prosperity will be yours. Kudos!
Inbar did an amazing job producing this inspiring video reviewing all the positive attributes of cultivating sustainable bamboo, helping poverished regions with fair trade and most importantly all the amazing products you can create with bamboo. The 3 skaters used in the video all were skating our bamboo skateboards and ride for us: David Kahn, Yasha Meyer and Nick Weber.
