“WasteBoards” are a new initiative of Plastic Whale, founded in 2011 by Marius Smit to build a ship from the plastic waste in Amsterdam’s channels (see http://plasticwhale.org/).
WasteBoards are skateboards made from bottle tops, collected during festivals. The procedure is simple: The tops are put into a mould and put into a hot oven. A couple of hours later, the WasteBoard is ready. Plastic Whale is now crowdfunding to finance a Mobile WasteBoard Bakery, which can travel from festival to festival.
The first WasteBoards were produced during the Amsterdam Dance Event in October 2015.
The price of a WasteBoard is € 99 (or more). Each WasteBoard is unique, because of the specific combination of bottle tops.
