WE MAKE A LOT OF CHOICES.

We are living on a wonderful planet, at an amazing time where each of us can help shape our future by making good choices every day. But we’re going to be blunt: future generations will not be able to enjoy the water like we do unless we start working to lessen humanity’s impact on the environment, right now.

Here at Starboard we make a lot of choices that impact our planet. We are banning virgin plastics in any way possible. We also calculate our entire company’s CO2 emission – then set targets and work out how to offset it. Our mangrove contribution to the Thor Heyerdahl Climate park in Myanmar means we’re even carbon net positive. Our office crew is doing weekly ‘Trash Hero’ events with local schools to show them the importance of recycling and up-cycling. We invite you out to come paddle in the Mangrove Climate Park or join us for a Trash Hero event.

Our ultimate goal? Decrease our negative impact significantly year by year – and inspire everyone to become more useful passengers on the spaceship Planet Earth.

Our Eco-Partners:

Parley

The space where creators, thinkers, and leaders come together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans and collaborate on projects that can end their destruction.

Mangroves for Life

For each board shipped we plant one Mangrove in the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar, absorbing up to 1 ton of CO2 over 20 years while also protecting lives from extreme weather.

Sustainable Surf

The catalyst that transforms surf culture into a powerful force for protecting the ocean playground.

Trash Hero

Anyone can be a Trash Hero, it’s easy! A Trash Hero wastes as little as possible, reuses as much as possible, and works to preserve and improve the spaces they are in, wherever they may be.

Watertrek

Watertrek allies discovery, encounters and sharing. On the water we come together in awareness to remember that while we are caught up in this consumer and materialist world, water is our most precious resource.
