This stunning octopus was handmade entirely from recycled thongs (also known as flip flops in Kenya. These thongs were thrown away, ended up in the ocean and washed up on the beach. They're a big pollution problem for birds and other animals who mistake them for food.
Made by Ocean Sole, these sculptures are providing employment for local people, keeping the beaches and waterways clean and contributing to ocean conservation.
Please note that because this is a recycled product colours will vary.
