PARK CITY, Utah – In an effort to fight climate change, Skullcandy, the headphone company based here in Park City, has worked closely with climate activist organizations to limit its carbon footprint and create products of completely recycled materials.
The company recently announced a new line of headphones, featuring a transparent look, designed to ‘create visibility around environmental impact’. The highlight of the ‘Hesh Evo’ headphones are the production process, which is carbon neutral.
In order to ‘assess, minimize, and publish associated carbon emissions’ related to the production of its audio products, Skullcandy has partnered with environmental impacts company, EcoChain.
Additionally, through a partnership with carbon offsetting company TerraPass, Skullcandy has been able to invest in accredited carbon-capture programs to mitigate effects, resulting in a net-zero footprint for products in the Transparency Series.
The reputable headphone company was ‘born on a chair lift in Park City’, and has been environmentally conscious since the company was founded in 2004. Over 4 years ago Skullcandy partnered with Protect our Winters, a well known non-profit climate advocacy group.
In addition to the carbon neutral headphones, Skullcandy also makes headphones made of completely recycled material. Material from old, recycled headphones are refurbished and resold. Skullcandy also uses 100% recyclable shipping material, and was named a Utah Green Business Award winner in 2021. Skull Candy touts its hard work, highlighting that since the program’s inception in 2019, 649,290 units, and counting, have been diverted from landfills.
