Sustainability is in each and every choice.
When buying a new garment, it is important to know the compositions and production processes involved. After all, we may be making yet another contribution to a more sustainable and balanced path in the consumption chain. Informed and sustained decisions are conscious decisions.
So, which garments should we prefer? Those that, due to their attributes, represent a lower environmental impact!
LOGISTICS AND PRODUCTION
The company prides itself on sourcing premium product for the conscious consumer that emphasizes quality, style and utility as well as supporting local manufacturing. We are cautious and selective in the choice of sustainable materials and of our suppliers.
Lightning Bolt production is mostly developed in Europe, which allows us to ensure that our products are developed in a socially and ecologically responsible environment.
“Made in Portugal” is a symbol of quality and reliability. The country has long been known for its tradition of textile production, which is combined with the innovation and modernization of a new generation that, based on the heritage and know-how of years, is focused on quality and environmental certification within the framework of European standards.
Lightning Bolt is proud to be part of one of the leading textile Groups to become certified under quality processes and management systems to meet international standards - EN ISO 9000, EN ISO 9001, ISO 14001, NP 4397, OHSAS 18000, GOTS and OKÖ-TEX specifications.
Lightning Bolt Ecoboards are certified with the “Gold Level” seal, awarded by the Ecoboard Project (an international program runned by Sustainable Surf, an American non-profit organization), to the most sustainable surfboards and manufacturers, which prove to have the greatest reduction in environmental impact.
• 70% lower environmental impact in every board produced
• 45% reduction on resin consumption and waste
• The same technical performance
Since the beginning, Lightning Bolt has gone far beyond surfing as a sport.
The core message is that surfing is a lifestyle that, along with an adventurous spirit and values such as inclusion, stimulates physical and mental development, allowing a deep connection with Nature. This is why in our events we choose to be present in Festivals and Events with a sustainable position and spread
environmental messages such as the “Destroy the Waves, not the Beaches”.
Our goal is to continue to build a community and raise awareness towards sustainability.
We love the ocean, we love the mountains and we love being outdoors.
Thus, we could only strive to minimize the environmental footprint of our operations and make a positive impact on all living beings and the planet.
With a knowledge of the past in mind and the will to contribute to a world able to sustain our future generations, Lightning Bolt remains committed to its ethos: A Pure Source.
