Mervin Made – Eco Materials

Top sheets from beans? We don’t exactly understand the whole life cycle from bean to board, but it sounds good! Mervin tries to lead by example by using eco-friendly materials like non-petroleum based bio-plastics, soy based elastomer sidewalls, low VOC epoxy, additive free basalt fibers and FSC “pure” certified wood cores to create their quiver available to the public. Enjoy a behind the scenes look at the factory with Pete Saari, co-founder of Mervin Manufacturing, and learn a bit more about the plant life cycle that you probably didn’t hear about in school!
