The Recycled Skateboard Slim Wallet from Scene3, is made by hand in its shop in Lynchburg Virginia. The designers do not source robots or lasers to put them together -- instead, humans make them by hand. Te brand's team worked hard over the course of several months to perfect the wallet's design. The wallets are slim, durable and even offer planet-preserving qualities.

According to the Skatepark Association of America, there were 13 millions skateboarders in the US in 2013. An average skateboarder breaks or damages a board about every two months. If you multiply that figure by all the skateboarders in the universe, the numbers are staggering. What most don't realize is that the majority of these broken skateboards end up in landfills.

The Recycled Skateboard Slim Wallet measures only 4 millimeters thin and can securely hold one to ten cards, as well as bills. The cards are held in place by a one inch wide band made from bicycle inner-tubes. They use bicycle inner-tubes because they have the perfect amount of stretch and grip to keep your wallet's contents secure.
