BE PART OF THE STORY
We've built the history into each product...
With each purchase you get access to a unique portal where you can read the full history of your sail and connect with other amazing owners who are carrying on the sail's journey.
... it's your job to write its future.
Salt Legacy is a company born on the water. After spending several years working on and under the water; Meaghan McDonald, founder and CEO of Salt Legacy, experienced first hand the devastating effects waste and microplastics have on local marine ecosystems. Salt Legacy was founded with the goal of building strong connections between individuals and the ocean in order to raise awareness and educate on alternative practices towards upcycling.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Marine debris are entering our oceans at an alarming rate.
The common sail is made from strong and low stretch materials like polyester and Nylon®, which in turn take hundreds of years to decompose once discarded.
Sailcloth is designed to withstand harsh conditions and a variety of long-term environmental exposures. Salt Legacy aims to give a second life to journeyed sails and other durable materials, transforming them into new products.
Salt Legacy will contribute to Vancouver Island’s circular economy by offering the local sailing community a sustainable option for the disposal of “dead sails."
Salt Legacy will encourage individuals to donate their journeyed sailcloth to become new products.
The End Result:
The new upcycled product will inform consumers on its history, to develop a connection to place, adding a personal value to the product.
