Can we just take a moment to take all of this in?
At OnAir, we love skateboards because (just like bikes) they’re a people-powered mode of transportation that create no pollution to use. Like, AT ALL.
For a country like Afghanistan that has had its problems over the past few decades, it may be safe to say that green solutions aren’t exactly top priority. However, when we see how skateboarding has caught on in these photographs (especially among girls–YAY), it reminds us of how innovative and important alternative forms of transportation are.
The skateboards are not only a convenient use of transportation, but they’re also friendly to the air. They eradicate the use of a car for these young girls to transport themselves, and it also gives them the flexibility of going wherever they need to go. Cultural stigmas aside, this is AWESOME. And green. And we love it.
