GREEN MISSION


ENVIRONMENT

“Impacting the World through Action Sports.”
From start to end of the manufacturing process, we always think of ways to reduce our carbon footprint, that is why we use eco-friendly raw materials and production processes in our facility.

Since we use wood material as the core of our boards, BLANK is committed to plant one (1) tree for every board we sell. In partnership with the El Verde Movement, we will be a strong partner in Environmental preservation and protection by planting trees and mangroves all over the Philippines where we are based. The El Verde Movement is committed to plant 40 million tress by 2020 and we are committed to be part of this worthy cause. The Founder of Blank Board MFG. is also the Founder of El Verde Movement. Furthering our commitment in protecting the environment, Blank Board MFG. is in the process of being accredited as an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) certified company.



DEVELOP INDIGENOUS MATERIALS AND LOCAL FARMERS

Blank Board MFG. will utilize the use of the “ABACA HEMP FIBER” produced and grown locally in the Philippines as substitute material to carbon fiber. To support the Abaca farmers and the industry in the Philippines, we are promoting the production of ECO-BOARDS using ABACA HEMP FIBERS.

Abaca Hemp Fibers have similar characteristics to carbon fiber, with far less pollution. They are super strong and super light making abaca fiber an ideal substitute. Abaca Hemp Fiber is a versatile, fast-growing crop that requires very little pesticides and no herbicides. Car companies like BMW and Mercedez Benz are using Abaca Hemp to replace Carbon Fiber in vehicles doors.
