Recycle old sails!

Recycle your old sails! We're trying to promote recycling by getting the word out that you don't have to send those old sails to the landfill. We will pick them up or pay for shipping. If you want, we can make you gear out of your old sail if it is sentimental!
Save the earth, one sail at a time.

all kinds of things. totes, duffels, sea bags, jackets, bibs, shower curtains, wine bags. the important thing is to keep the sails out of the landfills and find a way to recycle them. we need to spread the word and keep it green.

We have a place here in Annapolis called "Re-Sail". They sell jackets, duffles and all sorts of things made from old sails.

They also cost an outrageous sum. $300 for a duffel or a jacket? Really? What are your prices seafevergear?

I like the idea. I'm no green ideast but love the idea of not filling the land fills or the oceans with our refuse(I don't believe that sailors in general liter but that the most of refuse comes from inland lakes and rivers.)
I do have a couple sails I can offer if you can tell me a little more about your organization.

I wouldn't mind getting ahold of an old sail. Being in the auto restoration business(recycling at its best) I think not only could I fix my own sails but find ways to use the excess, My wife does upholstery work things like a seat cover for my boats tow vehical. or a very light weight bimini for the boat.

Its not only the sails that can be recycled I bought a boat that had sunk for the parts/equipment that I needed to get my boat in the water after setting 15 yrs and then other stuff went to getting 5 other boats sea worthy. I plan on useing the left over hull to build a smaller boat/dingy.
