Impact and local conditions

No children work in the factories and/or on work sites of the initiatives we work with. It may, however, happen that children help 'search' for the flip flops on the beaches.

The employment conditions for people at the African initiatives that Nic&Mic work with are far better than average. The standard is set very high.

Employees receive an above-average income with which they can support their families.

Meals are provided daily to all employees and a system has been set up which helps them to save money automatically.

We asked our colleagues in Kenya (Ocean Sole): what happens to all other plastic collected from the beach? Does it go to a waste management company?

There are certain plastics which can be recycled, such as bottle tops. We partner with organisations like EcoWorld in Watamu that recycle hard plastics. Most hard plastics are recycled.

Unfortunately, a large proportion of the other plastic, such as  single use plastic is brought to the government rubbish dumps and put into landfills. We don’t yet have the infrastructure in this country to deal with this other type of waste.

If required, we can prepare an Impact Report including various specifications, i.e. the number of flip flops, uniforms, jeans, wine bottles used ,the CO2 footprint, CO2 reduction/savings, kilos of waste processed and how many people have been provided with employment and earned a decent income as a result.

Over 50 % of the retail value of Ocean Sole sculptures remains in Kenya.

An Ocean Sole XL giraffe, incorporates over 40 washed-up flip flops and takes over 32 hours of work. An entire work week!

Beanbag filling

You can order Ashanti Design's beanbags with or without.filling.

Nowadays, a lot of different (beanbag) fillings are offered, but many of these fillings are not nearly as comfortable and lose volume quickly.

We offer a filling made of BioFoampearls. These quality pearls have a longer lifespan than regular beanbag fillings, are fully biodegradable and Cradle2Cradle certified. The filling can be emptied into a green recycle bin when you no longer use the beanbag.

During production of BioFoampearls, 40% less CO2 is released than during the production of regular (polystyrene) beanbag filling. So you have a beanbag to relax in with peace of mind!

- 100% compostable and biodegradable filling, namely EPS-BioFoam beads
- 40% less CO2 emissions during production of this filling than of regular beanbag filling
- plastic-free production and packaging
- because of the pearls small size, many times more comfortable than regular beanbag filling


About Ocean Sole

A lot is achievable, would you like to surprise someone with a special and above all impactful gift? Custom made sculptures are certainly possible! Many 'Western' animals are not always as easy for our sculptors at Ocean Sole to design and make as the African animals, it therefore often takes a bit more preparation and production time.

All small and medium sculptures are made entirely from washed-up flip flops.

From size L onwards (increasing from XL, XXL, to masterpiece), the body is made from recycled insulation material, covered with glued on flip flops.

You can  read  how many flip flops are used for each Ocean Sole sculpture in our shop,
