RECYCLING & CREATIVITY – OCEAN SOLE KENYA

Have you ever read or heard a story that completely tugged at your heart-strings? Well, that is exactly how I felt when I learned about Ocean Sole Kenya. Ocean Sole is what happens when you combine recycling, a little creativity and a cause. The idea behind this initiative is to collect discarded flip-flops (which are the largest marine pollutant found in the Indian Ocean beaches) and turn them into works of art that include sculptures, accessories and stationary.

It’s also a way for local Kenyan residents to earn an income while showing off their craftsmanship skills.
