The panda and the gorilla go together like perfect bookends!
Each Ocean Sole animal is an individually sculpted piece: the panda is made from 8 recovered flip-flops, while each gorilla uses 9 flip flops.
These wonderful animals are playful art pieces, and they have positively impacted many by cleaning up over a thousand tons of flip-flops from the ocean and waterways in Kenya, as well as providing steady income to over 150 low-income Kenyans.
Sold individually as well as in this bookend set. Actual design and colors will vary. While these upcycled animals are playful to look at, we do not recommend them as toys, and they are not suitable for children under 3.
Panda: measures approximately 6"H x 4"W x 6"L Gorilla: measures approximately 6.5"H x 3.75"W x 4.5"L
Ocean Sole contributes over 10% of their revenue to marine conservation programs such as the Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
"I fell in love with these colorful, whimsical animals and love having them on my desk. They are a wonderful reminder of how important it is to reduce plastic in our oceans and protect marine and terrestrial wildlife. And I never get tired of telling the story of Ocean Sole and all they're doing to get flip-flops out of landfills and oceans." - Tigger
