About Us

Upcycled Yoga Blocks

Our beautiful, fun yoga blocks are made by Ocean Sole Africa, a Kenyan social enterprise whose mission is to turn the earth’s flip-flop pollution into inspiring art & functional pieces to promote marine conservation & create employment in high impact areas.

What’s not to love?!

A whopping 3.5 billion people in the world, particularly in developing countries, wear flip-flops as their primary form of footwear. Flip-flops are cheap to buy but not durable in use. This, combined with underdeveloped waste processing systems in many countries means that the flip-flops end up in our rivers & washed up on our beaches.

By buying a yoga block you are playing your part too, saving 21 flip-flops from landfill & providing a steady income to people in Kenya.

10% of Ocean Sole Africa's revenue goes towards marine conservation programmes.

Please note:

We are currently experiencing longer than usual delivery times as we are waiting on our stock to arrive from Kenya. We apologise for the delay and are optimistic that our blocks will be with us soon as COVID-19 lockdown regulations start to ease and air travel picks up again. If you would still like to continue with your purchase we will be sure to keep you updated on how things progress; guaranteeing that you will receive one of our colourful blocks.

Best wishes,

Downward Duck
