Once There Was Trash, Now There Is Skateboarding
When Mac Premo was asked by the World Wildlife Fund to make art out of repurposed material, he took the challenge a step further. Together with teh carpenter Don Sanford, they worked to fashion skateboards out of six-gallon buckets pulled from dumpsters. The project turned into a campaign that now gives the skateboards to kids in Los Angeles and New York.

With that, Knife & Saw was born.
