OWNER, COMET SKATEBOARDS
A typical skateboard deck is a sandwich of unsustainability: chemical epoxies pressed between layers of overlogged maple and coated with toxic varnishes. In 1998, Salfi cofounded Comet Skateboards (cometskateboards.com) with the goal of creating a greener board. At its solar-powered San Francisco factory, the company makes decks with Forest Stewardship Councilcertified wood, then builds the boards in Oakland with water-based glues and coatings. This fall, Salfi, 36, plans to launch a biodegradable board made of plant-based composite material.
