These scrap skateboard creations are an example of upcycling at its finest. You know how it goes, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Are these designs strictly for skateboarders? I think not. From shattered skateboard furniture to fashion from skateboard parts, you can grab a piece of the skateboard swagger without doing any of the work.

Implications - The skateboard has gone from simple piece of sports equipment to symbol of rebellion and youth in the passed few years, calling companies who wish to emulate such a message to use the skateboard in designs and campaigns. The skateboard is easily re-used, making it ideal for use as a physical medium and a way to exemplify eco consciousness.
