Paperflops - flipflops from newspaper!

I love imaginative ways of recycling! Take a look at these flipflops, aptly call Paperflops, made from recycled newspaper. A fact I love even better: the making of these flipflops "employs underprivileged people including street children and disabled people throughout Yogyakarta, Indonesia."


Weaving the newspapers!

  1. Wow! That is such a great idea. The kids at my school wear Toms not only because they're comfortable, but because some of the proceeds go to kids in Africa. Thanks for sharing.
