When you think of plastic waste, the first things that probably come to mind are plastic straws, disposable bags or water bottles - but you might not necessarily think of flip-flops.

In this instalment of the SOapBox Series, we spoke with the CEO of Ocean Sole, Erin Smith. Ocean Sole is a Kenyan social enterprise whose mission is to turn flip-flop pollution into inspiring art, promoting marine conservation and creating employment in high impact areas.

We love what the team is doing at Ocean Sole - so much so that we partner with them ourselves!

In this episode, we talk about Ocean Sole’s mission in more detail, how they’re empowering communities in Kenya, and Erin’s ideas for ending the flip-flop waste problem. Listen now for some great insights.
