We love skateboarding, in fact, we recently ran a piece about the best electric skateboards.
But there’s something about old school skateboarding that really gets our pulse racing.
Sadly, a lot of skateboarding has been, traditionally, not so good for our planet.
Enter Street Plant
Mike Vallely and his daughter Emily decided that skateboards didn’t need to be harsh on the Earth.
In fact, they wanted to build the first customized, environmentally sound, fully sustainable skateboards.
And to do it, they founded Street Plant in 2015.
The Pedigree Of Street Plant
Of course, as any skater knows, you can’t just start carving boards without some sort of experience.
So, the duo teamed up with Factory13 Skateboards to get the job done and they have succeeded admirably.
These boards are made using a “long process” that eliminates things that make most boards bad for the environment.
They pair resin and maple plywood to deliver a board that doesn’t cut any corners when it comes to the skating experience.
It’s awesome. And so are these e-bike kits if you’d rather not do all the hard work when getting around town.
