Hello all my sustainable babes!
We’ve been M.I.A, I know. I apologize on both of our behaves. There has been moving, buying homes and engagements on our end over here and it’s be crazy! In a good way. Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing about all that fun later.
I had to post about this AWE-some company I ran into while exploring Know Tomorrow fair at Pitzer College’s campus.
“Bureo designs and manufactures a unique line of sustainable skateboards. Bureo’s innovative boards are manufactured in Chile through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, Chile’s first ever fishnet collection & recycling program. Net Positiva provides fisherman with environmentally sound disposal points, while Bureo receives highly recyclable and durable raw materials. By offering recycled high quality products, Bureo enables ethically conscious consumers to support recycling development and job growth for local inhabitants.
The name ‘Bureo’ comes from the language of the Mapuche, the native Chileans, and means ´the waves’. Selected in honor of the Chilean people, the name represents our mission. Just as a wave originates from a disturbance of wind along the ocean surface, Bureo is starting with a small change in an ocean of plastic. Through time and energy, the waves of Bureo will develop the force required to cause real change.”
How ingenious is that?! This So Cal girl is stoked!
For all my little sustainable board riders out there, you got to get your hands on one of these. Not a skater? That’s coo. They have awesome T-shirts, sunglasses and other goodies that are helping our Mother Earth as well.
Go hug your Mother E,
