This post was sponsored by Olli World Flip Flops. However, opinions expressed here are entirely my own. I love flip-flops and every summer I have the funny tan to prove it.
Confession: I love my flip-flops; they are like summer slippers and the next best thing to bare feet. I wait all year to wear flip-flops in the summer. When I was a teenager, I used to even wear my flip-flops even in winter! I love them that much.
So when I learned of Olli Flip-Flops: fair trade, natural rubber and free of toxic chemicals… I knew I had found my new favourite summer shoe!
We all know there are a million choices out there for cheap, toxic flip-flops but Olli flop-flops are unique because they are members of the Fair Rubber Association, only purchasing from plantations that are audited for fair wages, safe working conditions and medical care. Each pair provides workers with a fair living wage for their time and efforts plus medical benefits, comfortable retirement and quality living conditions.
And the difference is remarkable.
I love knowing that my shoes helped keep someone else free from exploitation and offered them sustainable work to provide for their family. Making simple, ethical choices like this helps end human trafficking in places like Sri Lanka and India, where the natural rubber is harvested.
The fact that they are made of natural rubber means that they are good for the environment too! Olli ingredients are natural, not synthetic and laden with harsh chemicals. Instead they are made of a biodegradable, renewable and sustainable material that protects the earth.
Plus they are so comfortable! Olli Flip-Flops are significantly softer and more supportive than any other flip-flop I’ve ever owned. You can tell that they are well made.
So this summer, think about the impacts of the footprints that you are leaving on the beach. If you are a flip-flop lover like I am then you will appreciate summer sandals that protect the earth, protect the people and can take you from city to beach in ultimate comfort!
You can get your pair of Olli Flop-Flops through their special IndieGoGo Campaign price on now! The project is already 134% fully funded and shoes will be shipping out in July, just in time for beach days and camping trips!
