Embodying a visually bold pop-art aesthetic, this Elephant Sculpture from home decor retailer CB2 promotes sustainable design practices. The eye-catching accessory is made from recycled flip-flops that have been collected from Indian Ocean shores.

Found off the Kenyan coast, these footwear accessories have been transformed into animalistic decorative objects that are meant to inject color and life into any interior space. This eco Elephant Sculpture from CB2 is meant to encourage repurposed material use with an aim to clean up beaches while protecting the marine ecosystem from unwanted and harmful waste produced by the discarded sandals.

These hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind sculptures embody a wild and colorfully vivid aesthetic that is achieved through the manipulation of an unlikely and eco-friendly material choice.
