17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
FlipiFlopi- Plastic Boat

The first ever boat by the name ''FlipFlopi'' made from recycled plastic waste collected from the beaches of Indian Ocean in Kenya started a 500km expedition from Lamu to Zanzibar in Tanzania. A long the way the FlipFlopi team created awareness on plastic marine pollution. The makers of the boat said that they simply wanted to demonstrate that single use plastic doesn’t make sense, and they hope people around the world are inspired to find their own ways to re-purpose ‘already-used’ plastic.
