So here once more the official release from the ISPO awards:
ISPO AWARD Winner /// Hardware
Amplid Green Light - Real eco technology minus the bullshit.
Sustainable Development: Amplid’s objective is to fast-track real eco technologies into Green Light products, replacing polluting materials with high performance alternatives that impact less on the environment. Eventually Amplid plans to roll-out AGL materials to the entire product line.
Performance: AGL materials do not sacrifice performance to appear green. ECO-PLAST resin is highly durable and manufactured from 60% aricultural material. Green Light topsheets are made from plant derived Castor oil; sidewalls and high speed bases are recycled and the lightweight cores are FSC Poplar and PET bottle foam with Flax fiber stringers.
Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility: When Amplid started it laid down environmentally responsible roots by keeping product mileage to a minimum and working with the EU’s most advanced factories. The Green Light project is the next logical step towards creating a greener Amplid.
Jury Statement: “Amplid have approached the development of their new Green Light Board from the recycled perspective. The Jury found the selection of these recycled materials of particular interest (Recycled PET-Bottles, FSC certified wood compound, Ricinus Caster Oil Topsheet).” Peter Waeber, bluesign technologies ag, Switzerland.
