From the soles of our feet we can effect change in our world. We love that by just buying a pair of flip flops, you are helping to find solutions to one of our planet's biggest waste problems - used tires. There are 1.5 billion tires discarded every year globally and that's a lot of waste - in landfill, in our waterways, on roadsides and even in people's homes where, in Indonesia, 60% of waste tires are actually burned for the fuel that is contained within the tire itself.
