Yes indeed. but what is a kite made of? most of it is oils based synthetics, plastics.....Westozzy wrote:Hey plummet mate how goes it. Don't know man a mountain bikes metal parts come from the ground to the smelter to the etc etc, blast furnaces use a hell a lot of energy! But metal rusts I suppose take a while for a kite or board to break down hey.
I know that north have a marketed their greeness with their kite production.
I agree - picking up trash, participating in beach cleanups (without being ordered by a judge ) is sort of a given for us (isn't it?). But where are the bold moves? Discussions about gear are about price, price, price - and the cheap shit is made in China, Taiwan and only God-knows-where - where's basically zero awareness (or even consideration) for any 'green' impact. Just thinking about it that's probably also true for the 'expensive' brands.C Johnson wrote:to the OP.
no it is not green.
the companies that sell gear would like us to think so though so that we feel better about buying more.
As far as picking up trash goes and not littering. that's a good idea but don't be fooled into thinking its enough to save the environment. Unless of course we can figure out a way to stop the frequent storm surges brought on by hurricanes, tropical depressions and typhoons not to mention the occasional tsunami from sweeping huge amounts of waste products into the ocean every year.
