Debuting for the 39th Annual
Earth Day Celebration
Floc Designs announces their new eco-chic Earth Line in celebration of Earth Day 2009. With the popularity of the original Pocketflops, a portable flip-flop that folds in half for consumers on the go, the new Earth Line of Pocketflops promise to be eco-stylish all while made of recycled materials. All Pocketflops come with a matching carrying case for the convenience of throwing them into a gym bag or purse. Eco-conscious fashionistas who would like to check out the special Earth Day designs may do so at www.flocdesigns.com
The new Earth Line of Pocketflops’ soles are made with 95% recycled domestic tires. Although 75% of America’s domestic tires are recycled or reused for fuel, there are still over 27 million tires that are disposed of in landfills thereby causing immense environmental . Due to heavy metals and other pollutants, decomposing tires contaminate groundwater and if burned can cause fires which produce black smoke and toxic gas emissions, according to www.earth911.com.
Pocketflops carrying cases are also made with either 100% PET recycled bottle fabric or 100% organic cotton. PET plastic is most commonly used to produce soda and water bottles and is a thermoplastic polymer resin assigned a recycling identification code of “1”, indicating it is the most recyclable plastic resin available. Recycling one ton of PET containers can save 7.2 cubic yards of landfill space and when recycled creates a fiber that creates eco-friendly fabric, according to www.napcor.com.
“By merging style and eco-friendly materials into one high quality product, Pocketflops were designed for the busy consumer”, says owner of Floc Designs. “I want Pocketflops to be easily accessible to the eco-chic in one easily accessible place.”
Pocketflops can be purchased online at www.flocdesigns.com for only $20.
