Kitecycle is recycling old kites into new handbags

Kitecycle is recycling old kites from kiteboarders around the world in order to produce new bags for several purposes.

The company collects obsolete kiteboarding gear and transforms it into strong, light, water-resistant, and machine washable handbags.

They accept any donation.

From C kites to the latest model, the idea is to have several donation centers where sports enthusiasts can also start being eco-friendly stars.

Only 3.5 percent of plastics in the world are recycled. That's why you are invited to participate in this campaign. Also, your contribution might be tax deducted.
