Lightweight synthetic materials could be sewn together into sails for a boat. Most sails are made of nylon which is similar to the scrap material from Nike clothing. Sometimes a hole rips in a sail creating the beed for a patch or an entirely new sail. Using the scraps from Nike jackets would create a lightweight rain proof sail that would help the environment. Also leather scraps could be weaved together to create lashings for the sails. These recycled sails along with leather ties would be a great way to reduce waste created from producing clothing and shoes.
