If you have old kites, sails or windsurf sails, bring them to the Expo and get a tax write off from Kitecylce, now with nonprofit status! They are also looking for recycle centers in other windy areas. For instance, Lydia is setting something up with Palapas Ventana in La Ventana now, and will be training some locals on how to make the reusable bags. This is a great project for social or special needs programs in your community.
