Rye Beach Market carries products that are earth-friendly and eco-conscious. Aside from all of our paper products (including straws!) being compostable – and composted weekly through our friends at Mr. Fox composting – some of our more permanent retail products are also eco-friendly.
We carry flip flops from Indosole, a company that claims to be “the world’s most economical flip flop.” The company is based out of California, but recycles tires from Indonesia. The founder and president, Kyle Parsons, was in Bali in 2004 and purchased a pair of sandals made from recycled motorbike tires. Leaving him inspired, he began to research, and discovered that over one billion tires go to waste in landfills and pollute the earth every year.
In 2009, Indosole was launched. The company repurposes indestructible tires by intercepting them before they reach landfills. The team visits garages and tire brokers in Indonesia and brings the tires back to the workshop, where they craft the tires into durable sandals and sell them all over the world.
We offer a variety of sizes and colors (green, black, blue, gray, and brown) for men and women at our store. For more details, be sure to check out Insdosole.com.
