I'm Flipping Over These!!!

It's no longer flip flop season...but it should be! As a HUGE fan of flip flops, I think a lot about what happens to the hundreds of thousands of pairs of drugstore flip flops that are picked off the shelf and purchased for $4.99 or less every year. Can you imagine that huge pile of flops sitting in the landfill at the end of every summer? While teaching English overseas, Kyle Berner discovered a solution. He came across biodegradable and recyclable flip flops.

Feelgoodz flops are made of 100% biodegradable rubber. Seriously? Yessireee, you bet!!! The flops come in lots of great colors and make great shoes for hanging out or shower shoes if you happen to live in a dormitory. And when you're done with them? Chunk them in the recycle bin!

MAJOR thanks to my eco-preppy mom for discovering these!

What a great idea! Have I seen doormats made from recycled flip-flops or did I just dream that??
