We're thrilled to announce our partnership with Sungai Watch, a dedicated environmental initiative committed to cleaning up rivers in Indonesia. Together, we're embarking on a journey to turn waste into wonder with our latest project - RIVERSOLE

Riversole' represents not just a product, but a vision of hope—a symbol of what is possible when we come together with a shared purpose.

Sungai Watch, founded in 2020 by Gary, Kelly, andSam Bencheghib in Bali, Indonesia, is a grassrootsenvironmental initiative dedicated to cleaning up andprotecting Indonesia's rivers.

‘Sungai’ means ‘river’ in Indonesian. 

Through community-driven clean-up efforts and advocacy, Sungai Watch raises awareness about river pollution and works towards sustainable solutions for cleaner waterways.

Founded in 2020

Sungai Watch is now a team exceeding 100 dedicated passionate river warriors, and together they tirelessly combat plastic pollution, working every day to create solutions to stop the flow of plastic pollution from going into the rivers and to keep our oceans free from harm.

To date, they've gathered an impressive 1,718,562 kilograms of plastics, including 70,000 kilograms of sandals - that's 140,000 sandals!

But where others saw waste, we saw opportunity.

By joining forces with SungaiWatch, we set out to transformthese discarded sandals intosomething beautiful andmeaningful.

But our collaboration goes beyond just making shoes. It's about raising awareness, sparking conversations, and inspiring action.

"When I first visited the Sungai Watch processing facility I was so impressed with how they are extracting so much waste from the rivers, cleaning it, and then turning it into useful products. This is the kind of solution that Indonesia and the whole world needs!"

Kelly Bencheghib

Co-Founder, Sungai Watch

“By creatively recycling sandals from rivers, we're not just cleaning up our waterways; we're redefining waste as a resource. Every sandal we collect can now be upcycled into a new sandal”

Gary Bencheghib

Co-Founder, Sungai Watch

“Step into something way cooler than just any sandal. With Riversole, you're rocking sandals that are part of a bigger story—thousands rescued from Bali's rivers. Each purchase propels the removal of many more”

Kai Paul

Co-Founder, Indosole

"Riversole is the result of two years of dedication and innovation. We're turning old sandals from Indonesia's rivers into new, impactful footwear."

Sam Bencheghib

Co-Founder, Sungai Watch

“Fashion is one of the most polluting industries out there. People buy new, throw out, and buy new again. This collaboration between Sungai Watch and Indosole is exciting because it shows the possibilities of turning waste into value. We are creating a secondary market for all sandals out there that end up in the ocean or a landfill. Millions of sandals out there are being disposed of every year. We’re hopefully not just turning old sandals into new sandal but showing other businesses a path forward.”
