Over the last few seasons Starboard have been involved in the Thor Heyerdahl Mangrove Park in Myanmar. For each Starboard board sold they plant one mangrove tree, absorbing up to 1 ton of CO2 over 20 years while also creating an efficient coastal heavy weather protection shield for the nearby low lying villages.
