FLIP FLOP FISH
What is the true cost of inexpensive shoes and flip flops? Most flip flop shoes are made of polyurethane, a plastic made from crude oil that cannot be recycled and persists in the environment for years. When flip flops are created, they are punched out of a form that also adds to the waste stream. A sandal that is only meant to be worn for a season can persists in the environment for decades.

- flip flops

PLASTICS ARE FOREVER
The next time you buy a plastic product, consider how long the plastic is going to last. If it cannot be recycled, find an creative way to reuse or repurpose it and avoid adding to the waste stream. Jus like Washed Ashore, you can repurpose discarded plastics.
