THE ECO SKATE PROJECT
SPASM Skateboards graciously gives back to Mother Earth by planting trees to help sustain our lifestyle and our ecosystem. By supporting SPASM, you are helping sustain our most valued resource, oxygen! Trees breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen, allowing us to live and breathe, protecting our lands from erosion and decay, and nourishing the world around us.
Did you know that one Maple tree takes anywhere from 40-60 years to be sacrificed for skateboard production? With an average of six million skateboards sold every year, you can imagine how many trees give their lives to support our passion!
Don’t worry though…there has never been a shortage of maple. Proper forestation has provided an efficient way to replenish the trees. In fact, some areas of Wisconsin are expanding the land where maple trees are grown.
SPASM Skateboards partners with organizations that make a positive impact on the environment by planting trees and improving communities. We not only donate, we participate!
