German brand Grown Skis have recently won the VOLVO SportsDesign AWARD - Ecodesign 2008 for there overall conceptualization in growing a sustainable product (skis) and company. Grown Skis locally produce and use a low-energy intensive process using 100% green energy sources. Grown Skis minimize the use of non-natural materials and use as little carbon as possible and no fibreglass, plastic top sheet or sidewalls, foil with prints or varnish while producing high performance free-ride skis. Grown combines wood with the high-tech material carbon in a timeless, pure and simple design, with the wooden top sheet oiled. The result is a that 80% of the ski is made of locally grown and produced wood. Then a recycling program promotes the reuse of the old skis to make bed frames, while wood scraps are used to build ski clips. We love seeing green products commemorated for being green. We'll keep you posted with their products! Grown Skis.
