Kenyan Company Turns old Sandals into Colorful Toys

Kenya's Ocean Sole sandal recycling company collects discarded flipflops that were previously polluting waterways and coastlines and transforms them into colorful handmade toy animals. The magic happens through craftsmanship, as talented artisans from local communities earn an income transforming the collected waste into wonderful flipflop creations. The company recycle 400,000 kilos of rubber waste a year and create masterpieces for sale across the world. The recycled flipflop creates awareness of our human footprint.
