SKATEBOARD BENCHES FROM OCEAN TOWNSHIP’S HIPCYCLE.COM

Hipcycle is an Ocean Township, NJ based company that sells cool shit made out of trash. They aren’t just recycling, they are upcycling, which is the process of converting waste materials into products of better quality or a higher environmental value. By simply purchasing upcycled items for your home, office or as gifts, you the consumer help keep material out of landfills and ultimately protect natural resources from being harvested for new products.

Now Hipcycle is selling your old skate deck. They are offering a new line of re-purposed decks that have been turned into benches and other items. Owner Andrew Sell tells us, “On the skateboard products, we were attracted to them because the material is unique and it tells a great story. I don’t skate myself, but I know that decks get trashed all the time. We get them from a small business in Pennsylvania that uses the deck pieces and also the trucks to make the stools and benches. Pieces of deck that are too small for the furniture get transformed into fridge magnets and key chains. Because it is a different type of product, it really helps tell the ‘awesome product/waste diversion’ story that is Hipcycle. What’s also cool is that the broken boards are collected from independent skateshops and parks in the US and Canada. A portion of the money generated by the products goes back to these small skateboard businesses or to help fund local skatepark projects.”
