Drei Amerikaner hatte eine bombige Idee, alte Fischernetze in Skateboards umzuwandeln. Zu diesem Zweck gründeten sie in Chile ein Unternehmen, das “Bureo”. Damit bezwecken sie, dass alte Fischnetze nicht mehr sinnlos im Meer herumtreiben, sondern umweltfreundlich wieder verwendet werden. Nachhaltigkeit ist notwendig. Super, wir sind begeistert! Ein interessantes Video folgt nach dem Break…….

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.
