A man in Brazil is churning out new skateboards from not-so-new materials. The plastic he’s using is from bottle caps!
The project is the brainchild of Canadian Arian Rayegani, 27, who moved to Rio de Janeiro right before the pandemic hit. He’s actually recruited neighbors to collect the bottle caps for him so he can make these boards.
Each one takes 500 bottle caps that are cleaned, churned, arranged and then melted in a pizza oven.
