HAMMOCKS AND SWINGS — PARACHUTES REIMAGINED
 

about

Aiming to redesign the current cradle to grave cycle in parachute manufacturing, Levity is a line of little to no waste products of hammocks, swinging chairs, and more made almost entirely of donated and up cycled parachutes and gear.

Taking the original material properties of strength and lightweight pack volume of parachutes, combined with the concept of being suspended by lines and fabric, Levity products aim to bring sustainability from one industry into multiple new communities.

LEVITY

lev·i·ty | \ ˈle-və-tē

“Levity was once a scientific term. Levity originally was thought to be a physical force exactly like gravity but pulling in the opposite direction, like the helium in a balloon. As recently as the 19th century, scientists were still arguing about its existence. Today levity refers only to lightness in manner”

SUSTAINABILITY

Keeps non biodegradable nylon out of landfills by giving manufacturers and consumers a source for scrap material and no longer airworthy parachutes and gear.  

INCENTIVE

Stakeholders get to make ecofriendly and sustainable choices while also getting rid of scraps and receiving a small gift made of their donated material or a discount towards a different, in stock product.

COMMUNITY

Culture and history is shared within the skydiving community through history of material on product labels while also expanding the culture into other outdoor markets expanding the cycle of sustainability even further.
