How thousands of discarded flip flops are given a new lease of life in Kenya

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

She flipped over the sack and out they flopped, dozens of discarded pieces of the world’s favourite footwear.

It’s hard to see a future for thrown away flip flops, but a Kenyan company has created one. Ocean Sole makes toys and sculptures out of them.

At the firm’s Nairobi workshop former wood carvers create beautiful pieces of artwork that are exported to zoos, aquariums, museums and shops the world over.

The idea was that of a marine biologist who noticed children playing with pieces of plastic washed up on Kenya’s coast.
