BEN, DAVID & KEVIN
Ben, David and Kevin are three surfing buddies who hate seeing plastic pollution in the ocean. In 2014 they started BUREO, a company dedicated to collecting discarded fishing nets (10% of all ocean plastic pollution) and transforming it into functional products like skateboards, eyewear and surf fins.
The film journeys with Ben to Chile as he works with local fishing communities to create positive solutions to harmful plastic waste and educates students on the importance of recycling. We then travel with David and Kevin, up the west coast of the USA, as they scale their impact beyond skateboards by encouraging other brands to incorporate recycled fishing nets into their product design.
