Paperflops for summer

Mentioned at  Green Diary, these earth-friendly flip-flops are made from paper flops shoesrecycled newspapers with the addition of re-purposed coconut shells, palm tree roots and recycled rubber.

The newspaper  supports the feet and the straps, base and sole are made of the sustainable re-purposed materials.

The re-purposed materials give durability, water resistance and a good grip, 1 kg of newspaper is recycled for each pair, and for an even happier result a project is afoot (Mrs Green did not initially intend that pun) to create employment opportunities by making Paperflops for disabled and underprivileged people in Yogjakarta, Indonesia.
