  • From ocean garbage to art pieces

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    The story is about artists working with Ocean Sole,a start up that collects flip-flops from Kenyan beaches and turn them into eye catching sculptures. The story is interesting because its not only about art but cleaning of the environment. The flip-flops are collected, cleaned and sorted then they are glued together, sanded and given new life.
