Plastic bags, bottle caps and CD cases, with a little work, can be the ingredients for making a skateboard deck. You have to add the trucks and wheels later on, and designer Jason Knight would appreciate a buck or two toward putting the plans together.
Knight, part of the Precious Plastic collective, launched a Kickstarter campaign today to make a download kit that will later be shared online, for free.
The funds generated by the campaign will go toward resources needed to make the kit and an initial batch of decks, according to the Kickstarter page. Anything extra beyond a campaign goal of about 40,000 pounds ($51,000 U.S.) will go to run free educational workshops, where people can make their own deck, to increase global awareness about the possibilities of plastic recycling.
