When you buy from our webshop, you help planting trees and re-planting forests.
Here is the story: SG Snowboards ever since has been dedicated to sustainability. We produce our products as consciously as possible, supporting small businesses and local industries, and protecting our environment. These guidelines have always been on our mind. In these times, we wanted to do more for the future of our planet, and to seek for a wider frame to our philosophy. We looked out for a partner, and we found the “Eden Reforestation Projects”.
Eden Reforestation Projects (“Eden” for short) is a non-profit organisation with a mission committed to alleviating extreme poverty and restoring healthy forests in Haiti, Madagascar, and Nepal by employing local villagers to plant over a million trees each month. The lives of Eden’s employees have been transformed by a fair job and regular income to support their families. They are able to send their children to school, to afford good food and receive medical care, being freed from debt, labor and sex slavery, and are experiencing sustainable farming and fishing as their land, villages and local economies are restored to health.”
SG SNOWBOARDS AND MADAGASKAR – A LOVESTORY
We as SG SNOWBOARDS wanted to be part of this idea, and to do more for sustainability. With this cooperation, we are dedicating a certain amount of each sold article from our webshop to one of the ongoing re-planting EDEN reforestation projects. Among them, we have chosen to support the EDEN project of reforestation in Madagascar. Why Madagascar – so far and so different from our Alpine snowboards world? Because this country is close to our hearts. Madagascar – in the Indian Ocean – is the country where our creative director Julia Rakotoniaina-Waldner was born and has her roots. It is a country that has lost 90% of its rainforest surface to erosion and depletion.
Therefore our choice was quickly made. We want to support the “Eden Reforestation Projects” in Madagascar. Re-establish the rainforests of Madagascar and protect them. These forests in Madagascar are known for their rich plant and animal world and are a true and unique treasure chest of nature. And also, the reforestation project is a motor for the local communities there, and helps them to have a better life. Eden Projects on YouTube
When you buy a board – or any other item from our webshop – you help reforesting (planting trees) in Madagascar!
