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.
