A local team in Thailand have profitably reused thousands of old flip-flops, turning them into new shoes. They call their project “Tlejourn,” a Thai play on words for traveling shoes.
Because flip-flops can’t be melted down and recycled, they devised a low-tech, inexpensive way to upcycle old flip-flops by grinding them into small pieces and then gluing them together into one solid piece. The volunteer group Trash Hero gives them all the flip-flops they find while cleaning up the local beach.
