Bureo designs and manufactures a unique line of innovative skateboards utilizing Chile’s first ever fishnet collection & recycling program. The decks themselves are made from old fishing nets!
Using these nets provides fisherman with environmentally sound disposal opportunities and gives Bureo a highly recyclable and durable raw material. Taking plastic nets that would otherwise remain in the ocean indefinitely, and turning them into shred-ready decks that are built to last is an absolute upcycling home run!
Bureo expanded their offerings this summer by introducing three new sunglass designs made from the same recycled nets. The fully traceable 100% recycled and recyclable nylon fishing net material is such an awesome upcycled resource, we can’t wait to see what else they do with it in years to come.
Head on over to our Instagram page where we’re giving away a pair of Bureo X Cuppow Glass Travel Mugs and TWO Bureo Minnow cruiser boards today! Winners will be chosen randomly on Friday.. what are you waiting for? Go!
