Recycled flip flops - made into animals!
Some amazing animals made from recycled flip flops.
These discarded flip flops are found all over the place, and a project was set up in Kenya to collect them, and stop some of the pollution. Many come from the beaches, so have been swirling around in our seas and oceans.
There are a few small animals left, but these will then no longer be available.

Recycled flip flops.
This project was set up to try and make something truly special and different, from the millions of discarded flip flops that are washed up on the coast of Africa. The flip flops are thoroughly washed and cleaned, and are then glued together into a solid mass. From this, the range of different animals are carved by hand.
As a result, no two are the same, and in fact, the two sides of the animals are also very different, as shown in the pictures.
The project – named Ocean Sole – puts the logo of a small flip flop somewhere on each of their products, as a bit of fun, and to remind you where they originated.
