The Flipflopi sets sail towards Tanzania
After 3 years of determination, resilience and passion from the plastic revolution community, the Flipflopi crew have set sail from their Kenyan home in Lamu, launching their first overseas expedition towards Tanzania.
Backed by UNEP Clean Seas Initiative, the Flipflopi sets sail on the first overseas expedition in January, travelling 500kms from Lamu to Zanzibar to raise awareness about marine plastic pollution.
Departing from Lamu on the Kenyan coast on 24th January 2019, the FlipFlopi will sail south along the coasts of Kenya stopping in Watamu, Kilifi, Mombasa and Diani, before crossing into northern Tanzania with planned stops on Pemba Island, and onwards into Stone Town, Zanzibar. The voyage will take between 12 and 14 days.
The Flipflopi team will be visiting schools, communities and government officials along the way sharing solutions and changing mindsets. Remember, this was never really about the boat - we simply want to demonstrate that single use plastic doesn’t make sense. We hope people around the world are inspired to find their own ways to repurpose ‘already-used’ plastic.
