Reasonable Green

Just a girl, trying to be a better steward of the Earth, while still driving a car and living an otherwise mainstream, twenty-first-century consumer life. She thinks you can be "green" and reasonable. Here is her blog.

Flip Flop and Fly

It's been a dreary few days in the mid-Atlantic. So much rain -- no sun! I went hunting for some cheery gift ideas and found these RG gems!



Recycled Flip-Flop Mats – straight from the Flip-Flop Factory! I found them at the awesome Uncommon Goods site. (Item #13069)

They are made from the surplus foam-rubber scraps of sandal factories. The leftovers would normally be carted off to the landfill, but some outfits are now having them made into these cool mats! I love that they’re more like reuse than recycling. No extra energy expended....just cute things made from potential refuse. Pretty sure that this will be my new favorite housewarming gift.

great idea, I have some sandals that are made out of old tires. If we used them, that would be the third use for the same piece of rubber!
