SCARPA Ski Boots Road To Sustainability Using Polymers Made From Castor Beans

By

“The polymer shell of our Gea ski boot, the flagship product of our ski mountaineering line, uses Pebax® Rnew®, made of 65% renewable source-derived materials. More specifically, the polymer is derived from castor oil, a vegetable oil extracted from a non-GMO and non-edible crop, therefore not competing with food production. In addition, this renewable material saves 32% of CO2 compared to conventional materials.”

Fascinating new sustainable ski boot construction by SCARPA using polymers derived from castor beans. The Italian performance footwear company is dedicated to a sustainable approach to production and has issued a GREEN MANIFESTO that I highly recommend you read HERE. If you’re in the market for some new ski boots and want a renewable resource friendly product, check out their new line HERE.
