ALL PARACHUTES HAVE A STORY
With a desire to do more with discarded parachutes, the Israeli airfoce has officially partnered with Hope Center by giving all old parachutes. What was once a parachute, will now be sewn into unique one of a kind up-cycled shopping bags. These are no ordinary shopping bags - these shopping bags have a social and environmental impact. All bags will be sewn at Hope Centers children’s company KitePride. KitePride employs survivors of prostitution, providing them with safe rehabilitation employment through sewing up-cycled bags. Each bag will provide an employee with ½ an hour of safe rehabilitation employment and save 0.3m² of upcycled fabric saved from landfill.
