DAFFY BOARDS Sustainability
Since DAFFY BOARDS was founded, we have always tried to source our products as sustainably and regionally as possible and to give something back to nature.
We pay a lot of attention to transport routes, regional and sustainable production partners as far as possible, we have optimized and reduced our packaging efforts as much as possible and we are a member of the "Grüner Punkt" (Green Dot) in order to be able to recycle the remaining packaging waste.
Cooperation Hof Belke
We come from Cologne and the Sauerland. The Sauerland is a region characterized by a lot of forest. In recent years, several million cubic meters of wood have had to be compulsorily felled due to climate change and its consequences.
Drone images show the devastating extent of the felling work - The Sauerland is no longer recognizable. Areas that were previously covered by forest are now bare.
The only option is replanting, even if this is costly and time-consuming.
This is where we would like to provide support.
Together with our partner, the non-profit Hof Belke UG, we want to support youth work as well as nature conservation.
In a greenhouse, young trees are grown by children and young people so that they can be planted later and the following generation will again find a landscape marked by the forest.
In the process, the children and young people not only learn how to raise trees, but also acquire and experience important values and convictions for their future lives: Awareness of climate change and its consequences, empathy, cooperation and communication in a group, the relevance of animal and nature conservation, health and body awareness, and a fundamental love of nature.
We support this project with 1€ per sold product (streetwear and accessories included)
Products and production
Our boards are made in our carpentry in Leverkusen (near Cologne) with wood from Germany.
The black anti-slip mat comes from Sauerland and is made from recycled material.
The cork mats, as well as our rolls come from Portugal and are produced there under fair conditions.
The cardboard boxes we also get from the Sauerland. These are produced especially for us to make them as optimized as possible. So our boards fit perfectly into the cardboard boxes and we can do without unnecessary packaging material. We have had this confirmed by the certificate DerGrünePunkt.
So we try to produce our products for you as environmentally friendly as possible and to do without unnecessary delivery routes.
By the way, our boards are TÜV Süd tested and comply with the ISO 20957-1 standard.
