It's important these days for everyone to care about the environment we live and skate in. Not only is Better Bearings trying to reduce our own footprint we also want to be a leader in the skate industry by bringing attention to unnecessary waste and encouraging other companies to do the same. We want to empower skaters to take care of their skate parks, to create a safe environment to skate in, and also to make sure garbage and recycling are handled properly and don’t end up in our oceans.
Better Bearings owner Kerryn, along with a few members of their skate team (pictured below) have set out to do something about this. We have started cleaning up local skate parks that need a bit of tender loving care but also wanted to provide an easy to follow guide that can be used anywhere in the world to help others organise a community clean up at their own skate park.
Watch out for our events and clean up days (follow #betterbearingsbetterparks on Instagram) or check out our events page on this website to see upcoming events you can participate in. If you would like to create your own clean up at your local park, all you need to do is register below, we can help you by sending you, posters, templates, social media assets, run sheets, risk management plans, a BB team member (if possible), prizes if you hold an event, suggestions on how to recruit volunteers. We can help you market the event, and we can also host your event and volunteers sign up form on our website.
We know its a bit of work to organise a clean up, and hope this easy step by step guide has covered all of the hard stuff.
As a thank you for nominating and successfully running your community clean up we will be sending you a packet of Lickety Split Bearings once your event is over.
Let's work together to make our skate parks skateable again.
