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.

Stage 7 of the 2016 Critèrium du Dauphiné was another tough one. With six categorized climbs on the menu, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka wanted to be part of the action to help Daniel Teklehaimanot claim back the Polka Dots jersey as the best climber of the race. In the end our African Team was able to celebrate, as the Eritrean star secured the jersey for the second year in a row. Edvald Boasson Hagen was also able to get onto the podium, taking the overall in the points classification. In addition to that, Steve Cummings delivered the icing on the cake today with his stunning stage win.

The 151km long stage from Le Pont-de-Claix to Superdévoluy saw an early break of 20 riders. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka had Teklehaimanot, who was equal on points with overnight KOM classification leader Thibaut Pinot, and Cummings (pictured above) in the group. The peloton, including all the GC contenders, didn’t let them get to far off the front. However, a gap of around two minutes was enough for Teklehaimanot to score the needed points in his fight for glory.


With roughly 70km to go Cummings attacked the break and took off alone. While his move split the the former break, Teklehaimanot (pictured above) was able to stay in the chase group, allowing Cummings to increase his lead. Over the following kilometers, the British time trial specialist opened up a gap of over 2min over the chasers. With 30km and two climbs to go the peloton was another 2min back.

Inside the final 15km the peloton, lead by Etixx-QuickStep, picked up the pace and reeled the chase back in. However, Cummings was able to defend his lead and crossed the line in Superdévoluy 3.58min ahead of Daniel Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) and Roman Bardet (Ag2R).

While the overall went to Chris Froome (Sky), it was our African team, who put on a strong show at the Critérium du Dauphiné. With 2 stage wins, as well as the Green jersey and the Polka Dots jersey Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka left its mark in the French Alps.
