Throughout the past few years, environmental impacts have become a trending theme that brands and athletes alike have taken into consideration. SPY optics, professional snowboarder DCP, and snowboard manufacturer Yes have teamed up to further the eco-friendly mission by creating the Zed snow goggle. This exclusive goggle mirrors the environmental responsibility all three parties value. Read the details of this green goggle, and note that partial proceeds go towards Costa Rican renewal efforts.
CARLSBAD, Calif. – SPY OpticTM today announced the release of its SPY® + DCP + YesTM ZedTM snow goggle, a product collaboration with SPY® Professional Snowboarder DCP and snowboard manufacturer YesTM. The result of the effort is a frame that suggests jibbing trees in the backcountry like an angry logger doesn’t preclude hugging them along the way.
“The Zed TM really brings together my approach to riding right now,” says DCP. “I have really started becoming aware of my impact on the planet. As a snowboarder I appreciate being in nature so much. My career completely depends on nature. SPY® helps me give back to it through this ongoing collaboration.”
The SPY® + DCP + Yes TM goggle uses organic, eco-friendly materials to construct a frame printed with DCP’s own YesTMTM hemp patching. It also comes with an organic cotton pouch with goggle-matching print rendered in eco-friendly soy ink. A portion of sales of the SPY® + DCP + YesTM ZedTM snow goggle will go towards reforestation efforts in Costa Rica through www.communitycarbontrees-costarica.com.
