A Fish Out of Water

Nets to Decks // Net Positiva // Bureo Skateboards from Bureo Skateboards on Vimeo.

During my recent visit to Monterey, I came across skateboards that were recycled from discarded fishnets. I had no idea that fishing gear accounts for an estimated 10% of the oceans’ plastic pollution. Wow! It’s awesome to learn that the founders of Bureo Skateboards want to address the challenge to clean up our sea and create a beautiful, useable product. I bounced a few times on the Minnow and loved the feel of the board! And now they’ve designed a line of sunglasses made from the same material. Check out their new Kickstarter campaign launched today!!
