(Sustainable) Skateboarding Is Not A Crime

We’re so excited to announce that our first sustainable skate park is complete in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward. This beautiful park for neighborhood children was the result of a partnership between Make It Right, Mt. Dew and Lil’ Wayne. Make It Right Solar installed the region’s first dual-axis solar tracker to power the skate park. The giant solar array moves with the sun to harvest the maximum amount of power every day. Inside the skate park, the ramps are made of 100% recycled concrete and the paint is VOC-free, making the park a safe place for children and for the environment. Check out all the work on the skatepark – from the launch on Go Skateboarding Day to the Grand Opening with Lil’ Wayne below.
