The surf sector is a polluting industry that deserves our full attention to improve what can be. If not everyone is surfing; on the other hand everyone moves! We met the team of Mobius bike, the French brand of eco-responsible bicycles which works to minimize the impact of its 2 wheels and which also participates in the democratization of the "bike lifestyle". Their commitments and values around eco-responsibility and performance immediately echoed at NOTOX. Discover their history and their vision of eco-design.
In 2015, the type P and type C were released, two cruiser skates that we had designed and manufactured locally in limited series. After a few years, we have reworked the concept to offer you a new version: the Quartz. We tell you how and why!
How to make eco-friendly carbon boards? We took up this challenge by drawing on the waste of the European aeronautics leader AIRBUS. We have signed an agreement to recover carbon fabrics destined for landfill and upcycle them into R-CARBON surfboards!
This bio-sourced and sustainable RESCUE project in Landes cork was carried out in partnership with the lifeguards of the Landes and the municipality of Vielle-Saint-Girons, which was equipped with the first models.
In service since summer 2020, the results have lived up to expectations.
Even if it may seem distant, since 2006, we have remained faithful to our same initial commitments: respect for Man and Nature. This position gives a solid anchor to our project and guides us in our daily actions. This has also greatly contributed to the recognition of NOTOX as a pioneer of this movement in the board sports industry.
When the temporary stopping of part of the workshop becomes the pretext for a micro "lowtech" challenge, and enlightens us on our ability to face unforeseen situations, while preserving the essential: our know-how!
