I’ve seen some pretty impressive skateboard art, but this has to be my favorite skateboard recycling project. HiConsumption recently profiled Art of Board, a company that reclaims broken skateboards and creates tiles from them. Recycling old boards is not only sustainable, but it creates a truly one of a kind piece–each tile is different. Who knew something so undeniably urban could create something so undeniably urban chic? These folks, apparently. What about you? Inspired to source out some new and different materials for your next tile project? If so, start by checking out more about Art of Board’s Sk8 Tiles here.
