Comments Off on Britain’s Biggest Indoor Climbing Gym Reaches for Sustainability

The Castle Climbing Centre – A Video Tour from CastleWebmaster on Vimeo . The Castle Climbing Centre in London, as it’s name suggests, has reused a Castle, although technically it was previously a water pumping station . Receiving more annual visits than any other climbing centre in the United Kingdom, The Castle is home to 90 roped lines and 450 climbing routes. What caught our eye, though, was its endeavours to reduce its environmental impact. Since 2008, when the centre’s owner, Steve Taylor, deci… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Kun_Tiqi Carve It Up with Balsa Surfboards

Photo credit: Kun_Tiqi We’ve covered a whole quiver of wooden surfboards in the past (links below), but the Kun_Tiqi boards somehow slipped under our radar, until showing up on the screen as one of the finalists for the international sports expo (ISPO) Brand New Award.

Comments Off on Vere Sandal To Make Greener Thongs in USA

Photo: Vere Sandal Company One of the persistent gripes we get from our USA readers is “Okay, so product x is greener, but why does it have to be made in China? Can’t we make it here?” John Eades, and business partner Michael Ferreri, will be hoping those readers vote with wallets and buy their new line of Vere Sandal made-in-the-USA thongs, flip-flops, jandals, or whatever you call them at your beach.

Comments Off on New Nau Now Available for Fall 2010

All Photos: Nau Having arrived in staggered releases, the Nau Fall 2010 line appears to now be complete. Unlike the heady days, four years ago, when the chic outdoor/urban brand of eco-clothing launched with more industry innovations than a porcupine has spikes, the ground-breaking is, these days, a tad more subdued. But is still quite evident in garments such as the women’s Splendor Trench and men’s Rheostat Jacket (both pictured above), which do have something unique going for them…

Comments Off on Just What We Needed Dept: A Gas-Powered Snowboard

The Mattracks Powerboard speeds up to 18 MPH, powered by a 200CC 4 cycle engine. My first reaction was “yeah, right, who needs this?” but in fact, there isn’t much good that can be said about driving two hours to get to a hill where you are electrically winched up to the top of a hill covered by artificial snow, so maybe this isn’t as bad as it looks at first glance
