拖鞋的重生 / slip into the forest

拖鞋的重生
拖鞋的重生

It is depressing and environmently-unfriendly to throw away some qualified slippers just because it's partly destroyed. But there were no alternatives. What about rebirthing your slippers? You only need some new soles, which have to be made of recycled paper and rough , of course. Stick them to your old slippers, and you can have the comfortable ones back.
One sole is consisted by 3 layers, each of which are painted with different patterns. If you insists on wearing them to the end ,the 2 bottom layers will be worn out and the top layer with a green tree will appear, implying the resource we have saved during this procedure.
