The ECO GIN label
The essence of kite surfing is environmentally friendly: being pulled along over water, earth or snow thanks to the power of the wind and without an engine. Offering eco-responsible products to riders seems like an obvious solution for us. We are conscious of the efforts and improvements that can still be made in this domain and the creation of the ECO GIN label clearly emphasizes its willingness to reduce as much as possible its ecological footprint in the creation of its products and through tangible actions.
Huge progress is still to be made as far as eco-responsibility goes. Since the creation of the GIN KITEBOARDING brand in 2007, we have set clear objectives to adopt a more and more responsible approach to our production. For example, we use recycled cardboard from local companies to pack your products. We give a second life to used kites by giving them to schools for manual activities and also to RONDECHUTE, who make bags and accessories in Fribourg, Switzerland.
These small actions testify to a real ecological awareness. The ECO BOARD is our first concrete product with the ECO GIN label!
