Elephant sculpture made from old flip flops. Ocean Sole, the flip flop recycling company cleans beaches and creates art from flip flops that wash up on the beach - ~400,000 recycled flip flops per year!
Abandoned flipflops are an environmental disaster. Thousands upon thousands of them are washed up onto the beaches and coast of Kenya. Ocean Sole is a small foundation that works on marine conservation with local communities. They work with artisans to transform the discarded flipflops into elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles and more. The artists are local men and women in need of employment who have been trained how to make the sculptures.
Ocean Sole works with artits to turn old discarded flip flops into colorful animal sculptures.
What a great way to protect our marine life and spread the message.
