About this project

Not very useful as flip-flops, but easy fun at the beach.

General information

Simple but genius: the Bisleri-Boots!

This EcoDesign is not very helpful, because these upcycled flipflops are really uncomfortable and don´t last long. But at least, you have removed two plastic bottles from the beach...

This is a promotion clip for the EcoDesign-Challenge:
If you have an idea or concept, a best-practise project or even an ecodesign manual for urban transformation, upload it at our crowdsourcing platform to share it with the world:

The EcoDesign Challenge is an integral part of the #Lake-of-Change ActUp-happening 2018 in Bangalore/India. But it is an ongoing crowdsourcing challenge and you can submit your EcoDesigns whenever you want.

All EcoDesigns will be shared on this platform, the best will be presented at conferences and online-publications and some might be exactly, what others need to improve their livelihood and sustainable lifestyles.

Thank you for participating in an sharing, caring world! www.makers4humanity.org

Main features and goals of this specific EcoDesign

Transform 2 plastic bottles into flip-flops, the Bisleri-Boots.
Just squeeze them to the size and shape of your feet and slip under the labels - ready.

This little upcycling intervention is a funny way to present the topic of ocean pollution to your friends on the beach.
Not more and not less.

Why this is important

We need to change our consumer habits.
Instead of one-way plastic, we could use metal crockery and cutlery for example.
Or at least don´t leave any trash on the beaches where they´ll gonna be washed into the ocean.

Team and project history/references

The Bisleri-Boot was invented spontaneously at a party in South-Goa/India.
Maybe others had previously transformed plastic bottles into flip-flops, but we consider this idea open-source and happily share this idea with the world.
