Bureo is a sustainable skateboard brand, manufacturing boards in Chile through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, Chile’s first ever fishnet collection & recycling program. This initiative provides local fisherman with environmentally sound disposal points, while Bureo receives highly recyclable and durable raw materials which is used to build its skateboards.
Founded byBen R. Kneppers, David M. Stover and Kevin J. Ahearn, three friends coming from engineering and sustainability backgrounds, Bureo has already funded the production of its first skateboards thanks to Kickstarter – although the campaign is still running and all the additional contributions will go towards expanding the ‘Net Positiva’ initiative.
