The Original Eden Project Eco-board





 
Here are some photos from my visit to The Eden Project. The Eden Project in Cornwall, England, is the home of the world's largest green house, which takes form as several massive interconnected biomes. The Eden Project launched an eco-surfboard project back in March 2009, the board now resides on display in the largest biome. The Eden Project also focus on educating people about creating a sustainable future through initiatives like the Real Cool Futures website 


...Over five years, staff at Eden worked with three other companies, Homeblown, Sustainable Composites and Laminations, to produce the board which is made from 50 per cent renewable materials. The move is considered a significant step forward from the petroleum chemicals used in traditional surfboard production.
