In this photo taken Monday, April 29, 2013, Jackson Mbatha, 40, sits with some of the discarded flip-flops he will carve up and glue together to make a large giraffe, at the Ocean Sole flip-flop recycling company in Nairobi, Kenya. The company is cleaning the East African country's beaches of used, washed-up flip-flops and the dirty pieces of rubber that were once cruising the Indian Ocean's currents are now being turned into colorful handmade giraffes, elephants and other toy animals.
