RECYCLED FLIP-FLOP SOLES
We spend more than a year trying to find a truly recycled foam yoga block. As we were not at all satisfied with the current standart of 10-20% recycled foam compound, as well as we refuse to produce and offer more plastic, we looked for better alternatives.
We miraculously stumbled upon the NGO Ocean Sole TM from Kenya. Ocean Sole is dedicated to cleaning African beaches and upcycling plastic waste from old flip-flops and slides. More than 90 jobs have been created for Artisans in the region thanks to the recycling of more than 500.000 tons of flip-flop soles.
Their team transforms wasteful products into artful pieces, and we're very proud to introduce the 100% recycled foam yoga block that's made from flip-flops.
We have not needed to add any percentage of new foam to create this colorful original pieces, which are not only incredibly pretty, but functional as any other commercial yoga block.
Each of the pieces is unique, with a slighlty different collage look. You can choose from 3 different color directions. The recycled yoga blocks are handmade with love by our friends from Ocean Sole TM.
We just love how different and vibrant each block turned out and see them as true masterpieces for our daily practice.
