Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
Maybe I'm just being cynical, but it seems more likely that cost cutting decisions were made, they reaped the whirlwind on that decision from a quality/production standpoint, and have decided to leverage a perceived Scandinavian-eco-consciousness to try and virtue signal their way out of poor product planning. Hence, rather than a statement of, "we chose a poor factory, and are scrapping our plans" it has turned into a finger pointing, holier-than-thou, straw man argument, in which other brands do not have their ethical integrity. But go ahead, purchase away based on this neo-marketing strategy millenials.

KC Deane and Geoff Gulevich Explore Iceland's Wilderness - Video
It's good to see riders like Gully, Hunter, Tippy, Cam McCaul, etc. transition their careers from freeriding and slopestyle into something more sustainable that can potentially extend their careers on their bikes indefinitely. This in no way means they are in the sunset of their careers. In fact, in many ways it means their careers are still on the rise. Like Hans Rey, they have become ambassadors of the sport in general, not just the brands that sponsor them. It's an awesome thing, and gives us all hope that even though none of us are immune to the ravages of time, we can still continue to shred for years and years to come!
