Recycled EVA traction pads

Does anyone know of any companies making traction pads out of recycled EVA?

Shoe companies turn out tonnes of EVA scrap every day, if it was recycled and made into pads it would compliment the more eco-friendly boards that are being made these days… probably be cheaper too.

I would be interested in hearing if anyone has any ideas on this, or is doing it already!

Great idea! Some google searching turned up zilch. I noticed the ads for boardshorts made out of some recycled plastics that patagonia is selling… I wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually do the same with traction pads…
