Skateboard is made of debris trawled from the sea
Humans produce an unfathomable amount of recyclable waste each year, but according to the EPA, some 93 percent of recoverable plastics don’t even make it to a processing plant. On top of this, the oceans often become the final resting place for reusable waste, harming the environment and sealife. In the past, we’ve seen the UK’s Studio Swine use sea debris to create the Sea Chair, and now California’s Bureo Skateboards is working with the Chilean government to create Minnow, a skateboard whose deck is made entirely from abandoned fishing nets from the country’s coastline.
