Ocean Sole

Since 2005, Ocean Sole have been cleaned up over 1,000 tonnes of flip-flops from the Ocean and waterways in Kenya and turning them into artworks for sale.  Ten percent of the sale of their goods is donated to marine conservation programs.  But its more than just environmental!  Ocean Sole provide consistent employment for over 150 low income Kenyans too.

Catalyst Global and Ocean Sole ‘flip the flop’ and turn traditional team building on its head !

At Catalyst Global we have partnered Ocean Sole to develop an exclusive raw material (one flip flop thick) that we can utilise in team building activities. Our programs are designed to be ‘feel good’ experiences that encourage co-workers to connect on a whole new level, raise environmental awareness and support sustainable economies. Sole Responsibility was the first team building program launched by Catalyst utilising this recycled material. In Sole Responsibility teams design and craft mobile sculptures created with re-cycled flip flops. Its a great way to get creative with colleagues, have some fun while exploring company values and whats more, the end results are inspiring take-away artworks to adorn the office and brighten meeting spaces.

Win! Win! Win! - Environmental and, social responsibility with great team development outcomes

At Catalyst we've also teamed up with Ocean Sole to provide a range of promotional gifts hand crafted from discarded flip flops cleaned from Kenya’s beaches. If you searching for a meaningful installation or statement sculpture for your office or reception then get in touch.
