Brisbane, Australia – Penny Skateboards are pleased to announce the release of their highly anticipated Penny Organic range in a simultaneous launch in stores across the world.
The Penny Organic Skateboards are unique in that they feature a biodegradable plastic deck that eventually breaks down when completely immersed in soil. The deck features a unique additive to Penny’s secret plastic formula, which reacts with enzymes in the earth to decompose. Featuring four entirely new colourways and the highest quality Penny branded componentry; the new range is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive plastic skateboards ever produced by Penny Australia.
Penny Founder Ben Mackay said, “We’re continually trying to raise the bar with our products and the Penny Organic range is no different. We’ve put a lot of time and energy into making sure the boards ride well, are durable, and of course look good. Every Organic Skateboard comes wrapped in a printed hessian tote bag that perfectly complements the range. The result is a product that really challenges what’s possible with plastic skateboards”.
Penny is the original plastic skateboard. Heralding from Australia, Penny skateboards has a rapidly growing following spanning over 35 different countries and is widely credited with bringing the “fun” back into skateboarding.
