I love a company that recycles and I have to say that the Killykite company does this in a fabulous and unique way!
Read their mission statement below:
Our mission now is to give a second life to our loved kite sails, which they’ve followed us for hundreds of adventures in sea or mountains and too many times are abandoned in some forget place, where they can’t see the sun light as it deserve.
The founder, Marco was a kite sailer and he loved doing it but hated that when the sails were damaged they were simply thrown away and left in a landfill. I don’t blame him, there are lots of good parts of the sail and using that fabric was the ultimate way to recycle.
He asked his mom to make something with the kite sail, and they decided on a jacket. His mother was a fashion designer so that task was perfect for her. What she came up with was remarkable and the idea came to them that this could be a great business.
They even have a program where you can send in your personal kite sail to have them recycle it, when you do so they give you a credit towards anything you buy on their site.
I love the idea, I love that they came up with this as a mother and son and now are saving a lot of room in our landfills. We also get some really neat products from this and they are always coming up with new ones.
You can find all of their products on their website and be sure to follow their Instagram to keep up with all of the new styles and ideas!
