We Recycle Old Broken Skateboards Into Unique Everyday Items

We are Commune DIY (CDIY) – the first skateboard recycling workshop in Lithuania and skateboarding community supporter. A young and ambitious team of skateboarders and those sympathetic to skateboarding culture, we work together to inspire new generation of skaters and spread the benefits of skateboarding and inevitability of recycling.

As we know today there could be approximately 14M to 20M skateboarders around the world and counting. Every day over 6K boards are broken and go to the landfill. We surely leave a bad mark in global pollution by basically throwing away broken boards that last around few months. Skateboards recycling is a must.

Therefore, we take initiative to our hands in order to change that. We collect and exchange old, broken or unused skateboard decks giving the skaters a fat discount on our fresh boards or handmade recycled skateboard products. We design and manufacture a variety of products out of the reclaimed skate wood from bulk business gifts to very delicate and one of a kind custom pieces. Recycled colourful hardwood Maple layers make a unique and sustainable material and is definitely worth the second life.

Here, in CDIY workshop we are now able to recycle hundreds of broken boards and produce all sorts of products for different markets in the world. The passionate skaters working for CDIY bring all their hearts into making great quality products out of recycled skateboards and building a stronger and more conscious community.
