I Ride I Recycle was launched in 2010 by the founders of Art of Board to empower the skateboard community, provide a recycling solution to the industry and support skateboarding at its core.
HOW WE DO THAT
We designed the first-ever skateboard recycling bin and together with a strong network of participating skate and surf shops, we regularly collect thousands of pounds of wood waste from around the U.S. that would otherwise have gone to landfills. Then, we combined efforts with Just One Board and Element’s No Board Left Behind to create a solution for any used equipment we received – all from one recycling bin in the skateshop to truly empower the skateboard community on a large scale.
WHERE DOES THE RECYCLED GEAR GO?
ALL wood waste becomes functional design. ALL used gear is refurbished and given to underprivileged kids. And ALL dilapidated decks are cut into cruisers, giving each one a second chance to hit the streets.
