Ski Wax, Snowboard Wax and the Environment
This study was performed by the Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in Sweden.
Purl Wax donates 1% of our sales each year to environmental conservation organizations:
Considering the big environmental issues facing us today, ski wax and snowboard wax might not seem to play such an important role… but a traditional stick of ski and snowboard wax bears a lot more toxic potential than generally known...
The concerns about fluorinated waxes have two branches. The first branch is related to wax technicians inhaling toxins from the fumes and dust. Read the article (to the right) called Human Exposure to Fluorinated Ski Wax.
The second branch is related to the production process. Manufacturing fluoro products requires some nasty chemicals, including Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). These chemicals have ended up in the water streams near Dupont and 3M production facilities and have affected thousands of people.
