This is the official press release from Sunsail, announced as part of their environmental initiative at the London Boat Show 2012. We dressed their stand with a few deckchairs and some red white and blue bunting. All very exciting:
Simon Conder, UK head of Marketing commented: ”Sunsail are proud to be working with Wightsails to recycle our old sailcloth. Responsible Tourism is an ongoing commitment to ourt customers and we are delighted that Wightsails are able to convert our old sails into new products to reduce landfill and create new products that people will use and enjoy.”
I then go on to say how thrilled we are and we are! We will be making many products for Sunsail that will eventually be available around the world, setting up another sail collection centre in Port Solent and spreading the word of recycled sails.
