Skeleton Sea – Kenia Project

February 2011

Our mission in Kenia should be a common project together with an environment conservation group.

Julie Church the  organizer  and manager of this group, called Uniqueco, invited us to come.

What they do is basicly clean beaches and specially collect flipflops, recycle or upcycle flipflops to artcrafts, educate and involve local people to collect rubbish from the beach and keep the oceans clean and finally create a market to sell these artcrafts and help the poor people to make a lifing.

We found this idea very interesting  and decided to help them promoting their project on our side.

The first days we visited the main workshop where all the collected flipflops go and being treated through different processes until the sculptores can carve them to their unique artcrafts.
