We're excited to introduce our 360° Programme, one of the first flip flop recycling initiatives in the UK. We take your old sandals and turn them into a new pair, giving new life to old products & diverting waste from landfill.
Why get involved?
An estimated 3 billion pairs of flip flops find their way into waterways and the ocean each year.
By taking the initiative to recycle your old pair of flip flops, you’re doing your part to help with this huge but solvable problem. It’s a small step that makes a big difference.
Designed to be recycled
Flip flops traditionally have a very short life span, lasting one to two years before being sent to landfill. At Ocean Refresh, we’ve designed a flip flop that’s durable, built to last and has an extended lifecycle.
Our Oceatex carpet is designed to be recycled up to four times into a new pair of flip flops. On the fifth cycle, this plastic becomes Category C waste which we send off to other companies to recycle into lower end products like plastic buttons.
With the 360° Programme we give our waste a second life — and give customers like you an easy way to recycle your old footwear. Simply send us your old Ocean Refresh flip flops and you'll earn credit toward your next purchase as a thank you.
