I've heard good things about the Arbor Cadence.
as far as an eco-friendly board, don't listen to the haters.
even if it's a miniscule drop in the ocean of snowboaridng, it's still doing something.
bamboo is faster growing than most woods, so it is easier to replenish, and it also makes for burly boards.
CAPiTA uses certified reforested sustainable cores in most of their boards. check out the Jess Kimura or Birds of a Feather.
Mervin (Lib Tech & Gnu) uses a few eco-friendly processes as stated before, and Burton is working their way toward having a few more boards pressed with less of a carbon footprint, as well.

|tanscrazydaisy||some of the Mervin family boards are made with "sustainable" bamboo cores, bio-based (ie corn or soy based) plastics, and made with "environmentally friendly" processes.|

basically you want a board with a bamboo finish.
the eco friendly stuff is just greenwash. get something that's built local and that is built well, take care of it and keep it for a few seasons and mother earth will thank you more than if you buy something with an eco friendly tag on it.
