We’ve always worked hard to be a green company!

From the beginning we have always tried to be good to our planet by doing things like sourcing materials as close to home as possible, producing many of our products in our own warehouse, and having our pagacking produced with bio-degradable inks on paper with recycled content.

So, as Lizard Skins has grown we have worked to do even more to go green. We have replaced our 48 warehouse light fixtures from the traditional metal-halide lights to new high-efficiency florescent reducing our total electricity usage by 30%.

We implemented recycling programs diverting up to 66% of our solid waste, the program donates all cardboard recycling to a local specials needs program sponsored by the state.

We have redesigned our packaging to show the recycling emblem on all paper and plastic packaging. We use FSC paper for all the packaging we print in the USA since it is better for the environment. We also switched all our plastic packaging to #1 PET which can be recycled in more places worldwide than any other plastic.

We know there is always more that can be done which is why we have put together our future goals for going green.

  • Upgrade key manufacturing equipment to the most energy efficient products available on the market today.
  • We installed 39 solar panels reducing our energy consumption by 1/3.
  • Build or buy a “green” building.

Every day we continue to grow and we are making sure we are helping the environment while we do so.

Tour de France Stage 3

Mark Cavendish Powers to Le Tour Stage Win

Tour de France Stage 3

Mark Cavendish stole the show during stage 3 of the Tour de France by powering to an incredible photo finish sprint victory over Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal). It would be the 28th Tour de France stage win of the Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka sprinters career, and his 2nd victory at this year’s edition of the race after his stage 1 triumph.

It was a long 223km haul from Granville to Angers, and when only Armindo Fonseca (Fortuneo Vital Concept) tried his luck in the early break, it resulted in a rather pedestrian like stage. Fonseca was allowed a maximum lead of just over 9 minutes as the peloton knew they could bring the lone Frenchman back at will. Thomas Voeckler (Direct Energie) decided to join the lone escapee with 80km to go but being a flat stage, the writing was on the wall, it was going to be a sprint finish.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were again looking to deliver Cavendish to prime position for the finale in Angers, after extensive research went into the final kilometers of the stage by our African Team. With 8km to go and the break caught, our African Team started putting its plan into action as Bernhard Eisel lined Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Mark Renshaw up in front of Mark Cavendish.

The young South African, Janse van Rensburg, was instrumental in determining the final result as he put in a huge turn from 6.5km to go until 2.5km to go. Boasson Hagen was then in control as the pelotot went under the kilometer to go banner, before Renshaw piloted Cavendish to prime position from where to launch his sprint. The Manxman came off the wheel of the German champion in the final 150m, as both riders lunged for the line. The finish-line photo showed that Cavendish had won by a mere tyres width over Greipel and Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie) took 3rd place.

Another incredible win for Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka and Mark Cavendish, who is now, with 28 stage wins, tie 2nd with Bernard Hinault for the most number of stage wins at the Tour de France ever. After today’s magnificent team effort, Cavendish moved into the lead in the Green Jersey points competition with 123 points and Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) 2nd, on 116 points.

Mark Cavendish – Rider

I am incredibly happy with this second win at the Tour de France. We planned it for a long time this morning, we had a long team meeting about how the finish would go and it went pretty much exactly how we planned. It’s good that the guys stayed calm and collected. It would have been easy for them to have pulled and then got out of the way with the hectic final, but they stayed patient. Edvald stayed patient, Mark stayed patient and then at the right minute I was able to get on Andre Greipel’s wheel. I knew he’d hit it early, actually he was stronger than I thought he’d be. Andre has guts, he rides like that. I actually didn’t beat him in the sprint, I beat him with the lunge. This is another great win for the team but more importantly, it raises the profile of Qhubeka yet again, and that is the reason we are here.
