100% BIODEGRADABLE, 100% RECYCLABLE, 100% VEGAN FLIP FLOPS
Waves eco-friendly flip flops not only do good but they feel great! The natural rubber brings a little piece of paradise to your feet. The elasticity and natural spongy texture allow them to mould to the unique curve of your feet, providing support right where you need it and providing the durability to cope with whatever adventure may come their way!
The Waves sustainable Flip Flops are handcrafted from 100% eco-friendly, ethically sourced natural Sri Lankan rubber and are the perfect alternative to traditional and recycled flip flops.
The compound in natural rubber breaks down harmlessly in the ground and is much better for the environment than the regular and recycled varieties. Bacteria and other organisms have a chemical arsenal that can break the bonds between the chains, processing the constituent components of the rubber, and turning it into harmless waste products.
Even though Waves use natural rubber to make their flip flops, they recycle too. They use discarded rubber flip flops and off-cuttings from the manufacturing process and granulate them, add them into the rubber sheets and use them in new products. This system cuts down on the total amount of rubber that producers need to grow, reducing water, land and energy use.
Waves flip flops are fair rubber certified so you can be sure their rubber farmers receive fair treatment and pay. When you buy a pair of their flip-flops, you are helping support the rubber farming communities of Sri Lanka, providing them with a fair, safe, and sustainable livelihood.
