At Waves, we understand that comfort is important to you as you stroll along the beach, head into town or slip them on after a dip in the pool. We know the disappointment that comes after purchasing a lovely new pair of flip flops only to find them uncomfortable, pinching or rubbing. We also know that in these eco-conscious times, it is important to find a product that not only delivers environmentally but also practically. One that will not damage the environment or short-change the people who work so hard to make them.
That’s where we come in! We’re confident that not only are our flip flops one of the most eco-friendly on the market… we think they’re also the comfiest.
Whilst flip flops are a wardrobe staple, we don’t often give much thought to what we purchase, or what happens to them when we part with them. Most flip flops contain plastics or man-made compounds. The trouble is that when they reach the end of their life, they either make their way into landfill, end up in the oceans and onto the beach.
The plastics do not break down and they can give-off harmful microplastics or petrol compounds into our oceans, damaging marine life such as fish, birds and plants as well as impacting people all around the world who rely on the sea for their livelihoods.
Waves are passionate about changing this trend… one pair of feet at a time with our environmentally friendly flip flops.
We also offer a recycling scheme for your old flip flops which you can find out about here
Our flip flops are 100% environmentally friendly, ethically sourced, made from natural materials and completely plastic free. We make our stylish and comfortable flip flops from natural rubber sourced and manufactured in Sri Lanka.
Rubber is completely biodegradable, recyclable and reusable as well as being comfortable. Our flip flops won’t leave you strapless, with elasticity in our unique rubber straps making strap pop outs a thing of the past. It doesn’t end there… In Sri Lanka we recycle worn & used waves flip flops as well as the rubber off cuts from production to make new products rather than letting the rubber that our team have worked so hard to process simply biodegrade.
We believe that stylish flip flops shouldn’t come at the expense of the planet or the people who make them. Our rubber is ethically sourced and our suppliers are FSC certified. We work with the FSC to ensure that even though our customers get a great product, our rubber workers and the environment are positively impacted too. As you’ve read ethics are important to us and you can read more about how we support workers and the environment here.
By buying a pair of Waves, you are helping our farmers in Sri Lanka to receive fair pay, safe working and living conditions. By buying a pair of Waves you are helping make a difference to rural Sri Lankan communities
We understand customers not only want an ethical and sustainable product, but also comfort and style. Fortunately, our flip flops come in a great range of colours and style and we think they’re the comfiest you’ll ever wear! The natural rubber itself is extremely light, soft, and elastic providing a cushioned sole and a strap that is unlikely to pinch or rub.
The rubber in our flip flops moulds itself to the shape of your foot when you wear them, meaning that you get all the support you need, exactly where you need it most. The rubber also moulds to the shape of your toes, thereby helping prevent discomfort that can occur from hard plastic straps.
