    It's a little bit of both. Comet Skateboards, an east coast board manufacturer, donated the wood to CODA architecture, which was the leftover scrap wood from the manufacturing process. Also, the brand deliberately moved closer to the trees that constitute their decks, decreasing the mileage that the wood travels. Comet works together with their wood suppliers to ensure that proper cutting techniques are used and uses formaldehyde-free glue on their boards.
