Comet Longboard Company uses closed loop technology to make their longboards. The Ethos 37 can really do everything well. From bombing hills to carving turns, this board is awesome.
Our manufacturing decisions are guided by the concept of "Cradle to Cradle" (C2C) as developed by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. C2C eliminates the concept of waste through "closed loop" manufacturing, which examines the entire life-cycle of all products and bi-products of the system.
Closed loop manufacturing strategies consider what happens to a product at the end of its life and what happens to all bi-products of the manufacturing process. Comet uses materials that can safely biodegrade at the end their use. The key to biological design is that sourcing is done in balance with what the earth can provide and that the bi-products and used products can safely degrade and fertilize the next generation of raw materials for us to source. This system stays intact when the next generation is considered first and foremost.
Where most manufacturers go wrong is in the mistake of combining two incompatible C2C material categories. In closed-loop C2C manufacturing, there are two categories of materials: biological and technical. Biological materials are organic. Comet uses biological materials with our closed-loop process described above. Technical materials are special synthetics that can exist perpetually in a manufacturing environment much in the way glass can be melted down to its purest form and recast into a new product. Unlike standard recyclable plastics, C2C technical materials will not degrade with each cycle.
If you combine technical and biological materials into one “monsterous hybrid”, it can no longer survive in a closed-loop manufacturing process. If you return your broken skateboard to the manufacturer, they cannot safely melt it down and recast it if it has biological materials in it, nor can they chip it up and safely compost it if there are technical materials in it. In a typical manufacturing situation bi products of manufacturing and products at the end of their life are thrown in the trash where they will be shipped to a landfill and persist for tens of thousands of years. When you throw something away, a fair question to ask is, "Where is away?"
Comet's Action Steps:
Low VOC water-based clear coat
Zero formaldehyde glues
Regional supply chain
Compost or repurpose all scrap
Ride your Comet skateboard with a clear conscience. When it has lived its life to the fullest, send it back to us. We will return your ride safely to the Earth and give you $5 toward your next purchase of any Comet board.
