At Bureo, we make skateboards from recycled fishing nets. Our recycling program in Chile, 'Net Positiva', provides fishing net collection points to keep plastic fishing nets out of our oceans. Preventing harmful materials from entering the ocean, our programs protect wildlife and supporting local fishing communities through financial incentives.
Once collected, our nets are washed and prepared for a mechanical recycling process. Within this process, they are shredded and fed through a 'pelletizer', where they are melted and cut into small recycled pellets. These pellets are then injected into steel molds to form our products.
We are on a mission to find innovative solutions to prevent ocean plastics. Our team shares a passion for surfing and the health of the environment. We are dedicated to making a difference and inspiring others to join us in the movement to protect our oceans.
