Our Story

Ocean Sole Africa, Inc. is a USA 501c3 and was created with a purposeful mission to support the arts, enterprises which tackle marine pollution and help improve the livelihoods in high impact coastal areas.

Our social enterprise positively impacts over a 1,000 Kenyans through the collection of flip-flops and direct employment. Our actions make a difference to the plight of our oceans and our ethos is to give back what we earn to change the lives of many: through employment, education, healthcare, skill training and meals.

We make art to raise awareness for marine and wildlife conservation efforts and use campaigns to donate funds to conservation organisations.

The SoleMate Project - Making Wildlife Art, Not Killing Wildlife

The Solemate Project aims to make large scale replicas of over 200 endangered and vulnerable species from recycled flip flops that are collected from waterways and beaches.

Over the last few years, the endangered species list has increased rapidly due to many factors including pollution, human intervention, illegal poaching and habitat loss due to population growth and climate changes.

The vision for The SoleMate Project is to create art that can be showcased in lobbies, airport corridors, zoos, hospitals, public parks and other unique locations around the world both to raise awareness and solicit critically needed funds for conservation efforts. This aspirational and achievable goal can only succeed with partners who believe in the mission.

How we make our flip flop art

Our process is manual not machine. Each piece is made with care and love, the story of each product begins as a flip-flop on someones feet, then its thrown out and ends up in the ocean. We collect it, clean it, compress it and then carve it into beautiful art to be revived again with love. Through the process, oceans are cleaned, jobs are provided, masterpieces are made, and in the end, you get something truly special and unique.
