How is art tackling our plastic waste crisis?

 

Ocean Sole is an ocean conservation group located in Kenya who turn flip-flop pollution into art and functional products to promote the oceans.

Millions of discarded flip-flops are posing major hazards to our oceans. Flip-flop artist Francis Mutua guides us through their work, where over 900 Kenyans have found support and employment.

Their mission is to become a global leader in helping ordinary people start businesses in the name of conservation.

Take a look at the short video and then discuss what you think about this as a response to our growing plastic waste problem.
