Most companies aim for better products. At PAMA Hockey, we also aim for a better world, which is why we invest heavily in sustainable designs and circular business practices.
Replace the Blade Service
Our PHX Titan is the first composite stick with a replaceable blade. If you break your blade, our “Replace the Blade Service” will swap in a new blade on the existing shaft, so you don’t have to throw away your favorite stick. Our replaceable blade is the only one of its kind at the professional level. While the service is currently only available in Finland, we hope to expand the service to other markets in the future.

Recycling Sticks and Beyond
Even when you break your hockey stick for good, our sister brand, Staga, turns that discarded stick into bottle openers, coat hangers and other cool items for hockey fans. We also use a variety of non-hockey related materials, including recycled parachutes, in our hockey accessories.
Teams and NGOs
We regularly partner with local teams and non-profit organizations to support various local and global causes. In 2019, we made a limited-edition stick for the Save Pond Hockey organization and donated €25 from each sale to their fight against climate change. We want to make sure that future generations will be able to experience the true joys of playing hockey on a frozen pond.
Whenever possible, we partner with local manufacturers within Finland, to support local business and to allow us to verify that our materials are sourced sustainably. This applies to our bags, jackets, hats, detergents, as well as to our printed materials and even our packaging. Only our shirts and hoodies are manufactured abroad, although even these items are made of recycled or organic materials that are sourced by a trusted Finnish partner. In the future, as we launch our portable stick factories in other countries, we will be able to build a sourcing network with local partners around the world.
Back to Plants
But, we’re not perfect. Carbon fiber is not a biodegradable material, so we are currently studying the use of alternative, plant-based fibers for our hockey sticks. In the meantime, we source all our composite materials from sustainable sources.
Organic or Recycled Cotton
All our t-shirts and hoodies are made from 100% organic or recycled cotton.
