On this project EKOply is being used for construction hoarding around the perimeter of Bath Abbey.

This bodysurfing handplane is shaped from EKOply which is made from 100% recycled plastic, the very same plastic waste that often ends up in landfill or even polluting the oceans.
EKOply is strong, buoyant, completely waterproof and UV resistant - making it ideal for use again and again in all weathers and conditions and has been received favourably by the surfing community
"Due to its waterproof, buoyant and environmentally friendly properties it is well suited to the increasingly eco-conscious surfer, especially when you consider the problem of waste plastics finding their way into the oceans and the need to address this issue globally." Nick - Owner of Renew Surfcraft

EKOply main advantage over Wooden Ply:
"In the year 2018 I see no point in using a product that was invented in 1865 - that is not waterproof - in a situation where the main purpose is preventing water ingress into a car."
"EKOply also has the main advantage of being a 'finished' product - no treatment needed - just cut and fit! "
