Paddle Boarding leaves its mark on the environment.
There is no denying that the manufacture of Paddle Boards leaves it mark on the environment. Over the the years with visits to our factories we have worked hard to check factory conditions and work on boards that are partly manufactured from recyclable material. However, this is still a work in progress.
On a coffee fueled afternoon meeting in January 2020 we put our heads together and decided that something needed to change. We needed to take the reins and step the Paddle Board industry up a gear in relation to its Carbon Footprint.
We joined forces with Eden Project (est 2007) and decided to give a little back. To off-set our environmental impact we decided to plant a tree for every board (or Coffee Cup) sold.
The Fatstick Forest
Every time a board is sold we will plant a tree and then our customer will not only become a member of the FatStick Family, they receive an email allowing them to ‘digitally plant’ their tree and start their own forest. This can also be shared on social media which will help raise awareness.
The majority of the trees Fatstick plants are in the North East of Madagascar and we hope to offset many tons of C02 emissions each year. We have also planted trees in Kenya.
