DC Shoes is an American skate and snowboard brand. It’s part of Boardriders Inc., which is the mother company of a group of skate, surf and sportswear brands. Unfortunately, none of the Boardriders brands offer any relevant information about their operations. When a brand doesn’t offer any information, there are several risks you take as a consumer. For example, the climate impact of that particular brand or product can be much higher compared to its industry peers. The company might use certain harmful chemicals or there might be animals or humans harmed for the manufacturing of its products. For these reasons, we believe that you should be aware of how products are produced and how a company as a whole operates in regard to our pillars. When there’s no transparency, you are at risk of supporting some or more of the previously mentioned harmful conditions.
