low impact board and ski wax

nate-21Green Ice Wax was founded about a year ago. The company’s mission is to promote sustainability awareness through the sale of environmentally friendly ski and snowboard waxes. All of the performance waxes produced by the company do not contain harmful fluorocarbons. Instead, they use safe alternatives to help minimize the risk on both the user and the environment. The waxes come in the form of a rub-on cartridge and iron-on bars. The products range from a biodegradable formula to high performance race-inspired waxes.

For more information, visit Green Ice Wax’s website  or the company’s blog.

Green Ice Wax packages in reusable, recyclable and natural bags to minimize the dependence on petroleum byproducts.

The high performance waxes are fluorocarbon free, reducing the exposure to these potentially harmful particles. Using these waxes leads to increased human exposure, as well as increased fluorocarbon levels in rivers and streams surrounding ski resorts.

A chemist with over 20 years of experience developed the race waxes to mimic the performance of the fluorocarbon waxes.

Professional and collegiate athletes have tested and approved Green Ice Wax’s products. Their testimonials are available here. The biodegradable rub-on can easily be transported to and from the resort, and applied at any time.

Green Ice Wax endorsed X Games gold medalist Nate Holland. He introduced his own line, N8 Signature Series.
