Need new flip flops? Consider getting a pair (or two!:P) from the Earth Hour Collection of Banana Peel, one of the Philippines' leading flip flops brand. These pretty, nature-inspired designs feature glow-in-the-dark straps made from eco-friendly and non-harmful materials.
Aside from having a nice pair of comfy slippers (Been wearing mine for three weeks now and I'm very satisfied!), you also get the chance to support a worthwhile cause! Each purchase will help Banana Peel and their conservation partner, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF Philippines), deploy solar lamps to families in the remote town of Monreal, Masbate so they can have a more sustainable and safer alternative source of light, other than using the more hazardous, kerosene lamps.
Banana Peel sent me two designs, "Bouquet" and "Punda Millia". It couldn't have come at a better time because my old favorite pair of slippers, which has served me well, had just given up one me. :P
Being flat footed, choosing one size bigger than my usual shoe size turned out to be a good decision. It fit me perfectly. Also, I appreciate the honesty on the tag that came with the pair, which explains that the prints are made from non-toxic paint and as a result, the print may wear off. For health reasons, I do not mind at all. Besides, most of the time, my foot's going to be over the design.
Most importantly, I really love how comfy the sole and straps feel. It may not be as soft as my old pair but it didn't take more than a day for me to adjust. I've even walked with it continuously for 30 minutes under the hot sun (3:00 PM!) and the level of comfort did not falter a bit. I'm a new fan!
