I am super excited to bring you an amazing company – Ocean soles -from Kenya, that recycles flipflops found littered on beaches to create fun and colourful elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles…
Creating A Sustainable Impact
According to their website, flipflops are one of the largest marine pollutants on Indian Ocean beaches.
Ocean soles provides a solution to beach pollution, as well as local poverty while feeding local ingenuity, showcasing the work of other creative Kenyans.
See their story as told by Julie Church, founder of the company.
Every single Ocean Sole product is handcrafted to protect the oceans and teach the world about the threats of marine debris. Smart!
Also, Ocean Sole puts 10% of its production cost into their foundation.
