Take a look at a great art recycling project. Ocean Sole is a kenyan organization that uses slippers that wash up on the beaches of Kenya to create toys and crafts for consumers.

We collect discarded flipflops that were previously blighting waterways and coastlines in Kenya. The magic happens through craftsmanship, as talented artisans from local communities earn an income transforming the collected waste into wonderful flipflop creations. The result is a bouquet of colourful, well designed sculptures, household items, fashion accessories, gifts, interactive, stationery and bespoke pieces.
