Flipaddle / Product


Flipaddle is a swimming educational product for children, that made by recycling hundreds of tons of flip- flops thrown away each year. And, all the parts of the flip-flops are recycled to create new products. Its soles and rubber straps are fixed to the palm of the child to increase resistance and buoyancy, helping to learn swimming more easily. Also, it effectively reduces the pollution and waste disposal difficulties caused by flip-flops across Africa. At the same time, recycling designs enable a large supply of poverty area in a low price.
