K2 Saves the World: Sustainable Skates
K2‘s ‘Eco’ is an environmentally friendly pair of inline skates which bring together naturally occurring and recyclable materials. The skates are constructed with a bamboo frame for the wheels. Since bamboo absorbs and reduce road vibrations it provides users with a smooth ride. The boot of the skates is composed of fibers made from ground-down plastic water bottles. In addition to being used in the fabric, the recycled bottles also have been used in the skate’s laces, skate liners, webbing and mesh.
