Although I don’t ride a skateboard I really like skateboards because of the colors, graphics and of course the great tricks you can do with them. That’s why I love the things people come up with to use/re-use boards or the waste generated by producing the boards. A nice example of the use of waste is ‘SkateBack’ by Grove.
In a collaboration with MapleXO, the sustainable SkateBack for iPhone 5 or 4/4s is made of 100% post-industrial skateboard material. Crafted in their workshop, this recycled adhesive adornment protects the back of your phone and comes in three color schemes. No two are exactly alike!
Saving skateboards from landfills since 2005, Lindsay Holmes of MapleXO makes recycled skateboard jewelry and other rad upcycled accessories. Recycling the boards has been her way to give old boards new life and contribute to the community by reducing the environmental footprint of skateboarding.
Since you’re here …
I have a small favor to ask. Thousands are visiting upcycleDZINE for upcycle design inspiration every month. Readers in more than 100 countries around the world are now able to support financially.
upcycleDZINE is a completely independent niche site, is very work-intensive, and offers tons of unique information for free.
To keep upcycleDZINE running, I’m asking you for your support.
Your contribution will allow me to:
– meet the hosting costs
– upgrade to keep track of traffic increases
– add new content, and keep improving the older content
– add new functionalities to this site
– improve how it works and how it looks
– and last but not least, my daily dose of coffee 🙂
Again, all contributions will be reinvested into the aforementioned associated costs of running this blog and will help ensure the ongoing quest for quality upcycle design.
Your kindness and generosity will be greatly appreciated and will give me the motivation to continue.
Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable for the future of upcycleDZINE.
