The impacts of climate change are all around us. Join us as we take strides to protect the places we live and adventure in.

Our heritage.
Their future.

Skullcandy was born on a chairlift in the mountains of Park City, Utah. Our culture is built on a passion for logging vertical feet, laying down fresh tracks and making a personal connection with the outdoors. With every passing season, we’ve witnessed the dramatic impact climate change is having on the mountains we call home. They need us, and now’s the time to fight like hell for their future. Join us.

We believe our products should never be buried in a landfill. Recycle or upcycle your products with our partners around the globe.

Fighting climate
change 1,000,000
pounds at a time.

We like to think our products never die. OK, maybe they do — but they should never, ever be buried in a landfill. So, we’ve partnered with facilities around the globe to recycle and upcycle Skullcandy products for resale. Our goal is to keep 1,000,000 pounds of waste from entering landfills by the end of 2025. Sound like a lot? It is, but we’re already well on our way.

Once at our facility, your Skullcandy product will begin its RePlay journey of being upcycled and resold or recycled.

How upcycling works.

Once a Skullcandy product arrives at our recycling facility, it’s officially on its RePlay journey. It will undergo a thorough inspection to determine whether it can be upcycled or if it needs to be broken down and properly recycled. If possible, it will be refurbished and resold, with a portion of the proceeds going to our friends at Protect Our Winters. Follow along to see how our upcycling program works and what it takes to keep our products out of landfills.

Over 450,000 pounds of material returned to circulation. That’s a ton of audio products that would have wound up in landfills around the world.

units diverted from landfills.

That’s since the program began in July, 2019. We’re proud of this growing number and we’re just getting started.

That’s a ton of audio products. 229 tons, actually — that would have wound up in landfills around the world.

Around 82 tons of consumer waste came from containers and packaging in 2018. We’re committing to becoming a part of the solution.

Thinking outside
the box.

In 2018, containers and packaging amounted to approximately 82 million tons of consumer waste worldwide. We’re committed to becoming part of the solution by reducing the amount of material used in our packaging and converting to 100% recyclable materials.

We’re taking sustainable action. Our goal is to make all of our packaging 100% recyclable by the end of 2021.

100% recyclable packaging

Do you ever get tired of digging through the fine print on a package to determine whether it’s recyclable? Our goal is to make it easy — all of our packaging will be 100% recyclable by the end of 2021.

Reducing the size of our packaging will limit the number of containers used in shipments, positively affecting the pollution we emit.

Less material = less waste

By reducing the size of our packaging, we reduce the amount of material to be recycled. We can also ship more units per container, and fewer containers mean less pollution as our items are shipped around the world.

We’ve joined PrAna’s Responsible Packaging Movement dedicated to replacing harmful packaging materials with lower impact options.

We’re proud to join prAna’s Responsible Packaging Movement with dozens of like-minded brands that are dedicated to eliminating harmful, outdated materials and replacing them with lower impact options.

The implementation of LEAN processes in our manufacturing process has led to a reduction of energy used and less waste produced.

LEAN and green
manufacturing.

The implementation of LEAN processes has increased our manufacturing efficiency dramatically. This increase in efficiency comes with a reduction in the amount of energy we use and the amount of waste we produce. LEAN processes have also increased our transportation efficiency, which reduces the amount of fuel we consume and the amount of air pollution we produce.

We’ve measured the ecological impact of our products and recognized an opportunity to use smaller, more efficient batteries in our earbuds.

Measuring, evaluating
and improving.

With the help of EcoChain®, we measure and assess the ecological impact of our processes and individual products. One area we recognized an opportunity for improvement was our earbud batteries. Starting with Dime® earbuds, we’re using smaller, more efficient batteries. As a result, Dime’s carbon footprint is less than half that of other true wireless earbuds.

We are proud to have joined POW this summer to lobby and make our voices heard to fight lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
