Each year thousands of flips flops from around the world wash up along Kenya’s spectacular north-eastern coastline, threatening vulnerable marine life.
Kenyan company UniquEco employs locals to collect the flip flops and craft them into sculptures, jewellery and other gift items. These recycled gifts
are certainly an imaginative example of how people can support a cleaner, greener and more sustainable world. UniquEco has tackled the huge problem of marine pollution in the local environment by making amazing creations from rubbish and selling products back to the world that sent them the trash
These eco gifts are cleaning up the planet and they are also having a positive impact on the people who make them.
