Riding the green wave: Arbor brings its sustainable boards to Santa Barbara
The skateboard and snowboard company Arbor Collective recently chose Santa Barbara for its second location and is now selling its environmentally friendly boards from a State Street storefront.
Arbor’s other showroom is its headquarters in Venice. In Santa Barbara, Arbor carries its own brand of skateboards and snowboards, along with surfboards made by similarly environment-minded companies.
In making its own boards, Arbor cuts down on the amount of harmful materials used, said Andrew Jacobson, owner of the Santa Barbara store.
