Globe Launches Sustainability Initiative Living Low Velocity

While it’s not always at the forefront of our thinking, sustainability has become increasingly important across the industry. From how we source materials for boards to sourcing materials for soft goods. In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, Globe is out with a new program Living Low Velocity.

In a manifesto-type statement on its website, Globe writes:

At Globe, as skateboarders, surfers and snowboarders,
we spend a lot of time doing what we love outdoors,
so we are conscious of our environment.

We’re far from perfect, but we’ve stepped off the fast fashion
treadmill and are focused on producing premium evergreen
clothing for the modern explorer.

We are using more sustainable fibres in our fabrics
and rigorously testing our clothing for fit, function and
durability. It’s all about making quality clothing that is low velocity.

The whole idea behind the program is to use more sustainable fibers and materials so that they have less of an impact on the environment.

Seems as if there are going to be a handful of drops as Globe mentions this is only ISSUE 00. You can check out more info on Living Low Velocity on Globe’s website along with their first collection.
