Love Is Project is excited to partner with Ocean Sole in Kenya to create an exclusive recycled flip flop bracelets that creates jobs for artisans as well as cleans the beaches. Each bead is hand cut and all multi-color bracelets are unique and made with LOVE. We designed adjustable cuffs so they can fit all wrists.
Ocean Sole is a social enterprise that removes trash from the oceans, coastlines and makes art to support marine conservation, whilst creating employment opportunities in high-impact areas. For every $20 spent, they collect and upcycle 146 pounds of ocean trash. Flip flops wash ashore, they collect it, clean it, compress it and then carve it into beautiful art to be revived again with love.
Each bracelet is made manually by hand. The story of each product begins as a flip-flop on someones feet, then its thrown out and ends up in the ocean. The flip flops are collected, cleaned, compressed and assembled into bracelets revived again with love. Through the process, oceans are cleaned, jobs are provided, masterpieces are made, and in the end, you get something truly special and unique.
We are happy to partner with Ocean Sole, an enterprise that positively impacts over a 1,000 Kenyans through the collection of flip-flops and direct employment. They provide steady income to nearly 100 low-income Kenyans in our company. They aim to recycle a million flip flops year, recycle over one tonne of styrofoam a month, and save over five hundred trees a year - by using flip flops instead of wood.
You're helping us show up and provide more economic opportunities to our partner artisans.
