100% Recyclable Natural Rubber VOS Sandals: Health Care and Free Sandals for Those in Need

sandal_description.jpg
Are you looking for a new pair of natural sandals that also gives back to communities in which they originate? Can you really change the world with your flips?

VOS Natural Rubber Sandals:

Our FLIPS are made with a natural rubber cultivated from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. This makes our FLIPS 100% recyclable and eco-friendly.

Partnering with Soles4Souls we have made the commitment to give one pair of new sandals away to someone in need for every pair we sell.

Partnering with the Gremial de Huleros and AgroSalud we assist and support over 500 rubber plantation workers and their families in the following areas:
HEALTH CARE
Maintaining a good nutritional status in children under 5 years old
Vaccinations to children under 7 (polio, tetanus, measles, pertussis, diphtheria)
Biannual de-worming campaigns
Essential medicines

EDUCATION
Family orientation lectures to raise the quality of life for women and children
Weekly promotion of oral hygiene to prevent tooth decay and plaque
Accident prevention in the workplace

LIVING CONDITIONS
Providing potable drinking water
Building latrines
Providing garbage disposal systems


The pair we were sent were too large for my feet so I can't really comment on their comfort or usage, but I do like the naturalness of the materials and VOS' commitment to giving back.

These are not your traditional flip design.  We were sent a pink pair, which is not my favorite color. I think they would be much more aesthetically pleasing in black.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.
