The recycled flip-flops that Ocean Sole uses to produce these blocks are collected from the beaches, waterways, and landfills in Kenya.
These products are hand-carved by Kenyan artisans and all are unique in colour with each one made from 21 individual flip-flops (or thongs).
Ocean Sole is a non-profit organisation that removes trash from the oceans, waterways and coastlines. They produce products to support marine conservation, whilst creating employment opportunities in high-impact areas. They strive to raise awareness of the debris problem in our oceans.
Each block begins as a pair of thongs on someone's feet which after being discarded, usually ends up in the ocean. Once washed ashore, they are collected, cleaned, compressed, carved and revived into yoga blocks. Through this process, oceans are cleaned, jobs are provided, and we get to enjoy something practical and unique.
As part of our Yoga Accessories range, these eco-friendly, recycled yoga blocks help improve alignment while providing comfortable support. They are great for standing poses especially when one hand is on the floor and are also suitable to sit on during forward folds or stretches.
During a yoga session, yoga blocks are often used as an extension of the arms but can also support the back, head, and hips to help the body settle into a pose. They support a range of motion and reduce the distance between you and the floor.
