Our Mission

Our Mission is to build the best ecologically sourced quality product, and show that it is possible to create beautiful design pieces and Longboards out of reclaimed resources.

By using reclaimed resources we tackle 3 problems at the same time

  • Reducing our own ecological footprint
  • Reducing existing pollution 
  • Lower the amount of trash on landfills

We set the example for other business owners and companies,

We show them how to be a positive change in an evergrowing global problem.

 EcoShape plants a tree for every product sold.  

These trees are planted in protected environments so they can grow big and clean the air we breath.

For every pledge from Tier 3 we plant a tree and provide you with your own tree seeds to make your environment greener and healthier.

We provide custom designed products made of Reclaimed wood and steel, fabricated and handcrafted in our workshop. 


WE TURN THESE

INTO THESE

 Why reclaimed wood? 

  •   Using reclaimed wood reduces the amount of emissions associated with the logging, processing, and transportation of  new wood. Your purchase of reclaimed lumber products helps to further reduce landfills and saves trees.  

  •   Reclaimed wood is 100% original and not mass produced like other wood products. It is real. It is what it is. If you are looking for a building material that is both personal and distinctive, look no further than reclaimed wood.  

  •  One of the main reasons we love reclaimed wood is its character. The nail holes, bolt holes, worming, staining, checking, knots; all of these natural and man-made imperfections add to the character of reclaimed wood. 

  •  Reclaimed wood is a one-of-a-kind product. Like individual snowflakes, no two boards look exactly alike. It's uniqueness is yet another compelling feature that draws people to reclaimed wood.  

                                        Why reclaimed steel?


  •  Although there are substantial environmental benefits to using reclaimed materials, the market is virtually untapped. At the moment, only 1% of reclaimed materials are used in new building projects, a percentage that should really be higher. One of the barriers has been a lack of information about sourcing and using the materials in design and development. 

  •  A considerable amount of energy is saved when scrap metal is recycled and reused compared to the energy that is consumed through the mining and processing of virgin materials. Studies show that over 55% of energy is saved by using recycled steel. In addition to conserving energy, other natural resources are conserved through the use of scrap metal recycling as well. Some of the other benefits of recycling steel include a reduction in use of coal, iron ore and limestone. Statistics show that 120 pounds of limestone, 1400 pounds of coal an 2500 pounds of iron ore are conserved every time one ton of steel is recycled. 

  •  Even as steel is recycled, it doesn’t lose its strength. In fact, steel can be recycled multiple times and still be built to last. Because recycled steel retains its natural qualities, it can be recycled and reused in nearly everything. 

                                   Design finishes & Paints

All our projects receive a final finish before being completed. Offcourse we also thought about all the nasty  bits that come with conventional finish products.

We opt instead for finishing products that offer a healthy, non-toxic alternative to conventional paint products. These emulsions are hypoallergenic with no toxic fumes and are completely free of vinyl resins and harmful petrochemical solvents.

So in a nutshell, this is not just about sustainability and reducing carbon output. It is also about using an eco-friendly product which is practical, inherently healthy for nature right now as well as in the future, cost and energy efficient.

The products we use must always check these boxes before we even consider using them:

  • Non-Toxic Paints
  • LOW VOC (No Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • No Petrochemicals
  • No Formaldehydes
  • Natural raw materials
  • Not tested on animals
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Extensive colour range

100% Handmade

 All our designs are Handcrafted in our workshop
