Skullcandy is also partnering with EcoChain to assess its carbon emissions so that its product development and manufacturing practices enable future carbon reduction. 

In addition, Skull Candy’s partnership with TerraPass has enabled investment in certified carbon-capture programs to offset impacts. This has resulted in executing a net-zero footprint for products in the Transparency Series.

From Nelson Fortier, Senior Director of Brand and Product Marketing for SkullCanday: “From materials and manufacturing to packaging, shipping, and infrastructure, everything produced or consumed has an adverse effect on the environment. The Transparency Series serves as a platform to educate and empower our consumers while raising awareness for environmental responsibility. By divulging our products’ impact, Skullcandy is raising the bar for accountability as we work to decrease our impact with each new product.”

There are two products in the Transparency Series so far that have a net-zero carbon footprint (via carbon credits).

    I own and occasionally use a very nice pair of Skullcandy ANC Skullcrusher headphones. They have a little slider on the left earcup that when you open or close it you can control the bass effect.

    I listen to a lot of Traditional Jazz and while this might offend some who claim to want to “hear the music as the artist intended”, I will use the effect of this on albums feature such greats as Mingus, Carter, Brown or more recently McBride.

    Jazz, real Jazz, is America’s gift to the world.

    Back on topic, I do like several of Skullcandy’s products and in addition to the aforementioned headphones that I own and use, I have given several pair of IEMs to family and friends that are as family.

    Thank you!

    El Posto Scripto – I watched “Goldfinger” last night. Shirley Bassey is a Goddess of Song.

    “SIGH”…
