Planet Flops™ – natural rubber flip-flops
Planet Flops™, founded in Beverly Hills, CA in the Spring of 2008, sells FLOPS™, the flip-flops made with natural rubber. Dr. Sylvie, a Beverly Hills podiatrist and flip-flop aficionado, created Planet Flops™ after discovering FLOPS™ are made in Brazil with soft yet durable natural Brazilian rubber. Natural rubber, as opposed to synthetic rubber, comes from the rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensis). The harvesting of natural rubber occurs by harmlessly “tapping” into the tree to remove a milky sap from the bark. This does not affect the health of the tree. They are biodegradable, recyclable and come in a whole rainbow of colours and in men’s, women’s and children’s sizing. Prices start at $24 USD.
