Recycle Your Wing and Support the Cloudbase Foundation

KEEN Footwear and the Cloudbase Foundation are teaming up to Repurpose for a Purpose. Used (and no longer flight-worthy) paragliders and reserves will be sewn to make bags. These bags will be sold at KEENFest with all monies collected going directly to the Cloudbase Foundation's projects.

UPDATE: These bags are currently available on Amazon: KEEN Free Flight Day Packs

For more information: USHPA News: Support the Cloudbase Foundation or visit The Cloudbase Foundation website.

If you have an air-worthy glider that could be used to train beginners, the Cloudbase Foundation also has a donation program for that. Contact them directly: Cloudbase Foundation Donations. All donations (whether for recycling or training) are potentially tax-deductible.
