Transforming discarded flip flops into a boat

Transformed flip flops! More than 30,000 plastic flip flops found on the coastlines of Kenya were upcycled to build a brightly-colored sailboat that is raising awareness about the importance of recycling plastics under the #PlasticRevolution campaign. The vessel, made from recycled plastic, set sail for two weeks in the Indian Ocean from Lamu Island to the Kenyan coast at a distance of around 500 kilometers last January, to boost awareness about the problems of plastic waste found in the ocean which is becoming increasingly critical.
