All of Ocean Sole’s products are made from recycled flip-flops that are collected from the beaches, waterways and landfills in Kenya. These products are hand carved by Kenya artisans and are all unique, therefore they will differ in colour to the image shown.

Ocean Sole are a social enterprise that upcycles washed up flip-flops found along the beaches and waterways in Kenya. Inspired by the toys children were making out of the flip-flop debris, Julie Church, the Ocean Sole Founder, encouraged their mothers to collect, wash, and cut the discarded flip-flops into colourful products to sell at local Kenyan markets as another means of income for their families.
Their social enterprise 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 their company. They aim to recycle a million flip flops a year, recycle over one tonne of styrofoam a month, and save over five hundred trees a year - by using flip flops instead of wood. They contribute over 10-15% of their revenue to beach clean-ups, vocational and educational programmes as well as conservation efforts.
Ocean Sole use their social enterprise to pay bonuses to employees, invest in a welfare programme that allows a zero return in funds to all employees to help facilitate payments for educating their children, buying land and other means. Their actions must make a difference to the plight of our oceans and their ethos is to give back what they earn to change the lives of many – through employment, education, and meals.
