Sculptures Made of Recycled FlipflopsArt
Ocean Sole, an organization in Kenya, that cares about the ocean, its ecosystems and marine wildlife found a creative way to save it from pollution.
Sounds strange but thousands of flipflops that are washed up in waterways of Kenya put in real danger the ecosystem.
The thousands scattered rubber soles on beaches of Kenya are swallowed by fish & other animals and obstruct turtles reaching the sea.
The artisans of Ocean Sole found a creative way to protect their environment from the flipflops by transforming them into colourful masterpieces in the shape of elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles. So the people in Kenya stopped throwing away the flipflops and started cleaning the beaches and making masterpieces, sending this way a message to the whole world.
Now in workshops in Nairobi work over 100 individuals.
What a wonderful way to preserve the natural beauty of the planet!
