Weekly Video XXXI - Investing in our ocean's health.
This is a cool project that Patagonia and Bureo Skateboards are doing. They are recycling old fishing nets and making skateboard decks with them. It not only helps keep plastic out of the ocean but it produces a product that people will want to use. Great work guys!
“We set out to make an inspiring product by incorporating sustainable design and innovative features, and making a board that everyone would enjoy riding. We want to show people that this material isn’t a burden or a waste, but an incredible raw material with great potential for upcycling,” said Bureo Director and Designer Kevin Ahearn. Bureo recently launched their boards in select U.S. retail locations and online.
