Bamboo Skateboards, an eco-friendly and socially cause-driven skateboard company, is partnering with SOLO Eyewear, a sustainable sunglasses company that gives back to two people in need with each purchase, for a collaborative Panda-Monium event at the W San Diego Hotel on August 15, 2013 (www.bambooskateboards.com). Both environmentally conscious companies utilize sustainable bamboo in their products and have panda brand mascots who will be present, interacting with attendees and competing against each other at the event.
Bamboo Skateboards aims to help reduce maple deforestation by influencing the skateboard industry to use green, ecological and environmentally friendly bamboo. This San Diego-based company has recently launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to increase awareness for worldwide deforestation, increase brand marketing and expand their eco-conscious product line.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with amazing local brands such as SOLO Eyewear and Deuce Brand,” said Mark Olson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Bamboo Skateboards. "This event will also support our current Indiegogo campaign by encouraging attendees to choose to skate green with skateboards made of bamboo.”
