Skateboarding is already quite a green way to get about the place, but what about the board itself?
Brazilian innovation group Let's EVO has created a sustainable skateboard. The cover layers are from Papunha Veneer, produced from the waste of the sustainable palm-heart industry. The second layer is a composite formed by 70% natural fibers (jute, malva and curaua) and 30% post-production recycled polypropylene.
All of these materials are bonded with a vegetable-based adhesive extracted from species like castor oil plant, soy and corn. I love the fact that the board's look is inspired by nature, hence its name, "Folha Seca"; Dry Leaf in English. For more extreme sporty madness, visit our sister site Nollie.
