WasteBoards

WasteBoards, unique skateBoards made from plastic Waste At events and festivals plastic pollution is a major issue. Much of the plastic waste ends up on the ground and eventually in the environment. Here’s the root of the problem: people regard plastic as valueless, dispos- able stuff. That’s why we want to show that plastic is actually valuable raw material which we can turn into beautiful products. And we want to involve as many people as possible in the process. each Board is unique We have got some really exciting plans: we want to create the first Mobile Board Bakery in the world, allowing us to bake WasteBoards at events across the Netherlands, Europe, the world even! But the Board Bakery can also visit schools, baking boards from bottle caps that were collected by school kids. Or how cool would it be to start a Board Bakery in the favelas of Rio, near the beaches of Accra or in the slums of Jakarta? The Board Bakery could stimulate local economies by creating value from waste. We dream big, but it is our philosophy to just start, create, involve and develop. We started recently at the Amsterdam Dance Event, the world’s largest international dance festival. Our partner DGTL collected plastic bottle caps that we will use in a special edition ADE WasteBoard. DJ Patrice Baumel even designed his own exclusive board. Next stop is the DGTL festival in Amsterdam, March 2016. And it is our aim for 2016 to bake boards at at least 10 other major festivals.
