Animal lion made from recycled flip-flop project from Kenya

The ocean has become the trash of the world Did you know that more than 80% of the garbage found in the oceans kills human and marine life, from landfills to beaches. Each year more than 400,000 flip flops (flip flops) arrive by ocean currents in Kenya and in particular on the banks of the natural reserve of the island of Kiwayu. Ocean Sole is a social enterprise that transforms flip-flop pollution into colorful and fun artistic products to promote the conservation of our oceans. At Ocean Sole, we process more than 50 tonnes of flip flops a year. By renewing this waste into pieces of art, we seek attention to this serious problem on a global scale.
