This weekend as you stroll up and down the beach with your friends and family would you mind picking up any random Flip Flops (sandles, bata bata, slippers)? Please put the sandles in a plastic bag and have students drop them off at my classroom (room 36). Part of my Eco-Warriors community service will be to create “African” creatures that can be turned into a mobiles and given to various orphanages and hospitals. Click on the link to watch a fantastic docutmentary video called Flip Flop Flotsam – a film about the “flip flop” in East Africa.
Again thank you for your assistance in collecting flip flops. And DONT worry, we are taking sanitary methods to clean these used items.
