There’s nothing better than slipping your tired toes into a comfy pair of flip-flops, and this savvy creation by designer Joseph Palmer takes this favored footwear into the realm of sustainable design. By repurposing used chopsticks  collected from the dumpster of a local Japanese restaurant, cork cut from an old pin board, scrap leather backpack straps, and just a little bit of dental floss, Joseph fashioned a pair of kick-butt Chop-Flops .

With bidding starting at $235, you could be the proud owner of this one-off piece of wearable eco-art – cast your bid today!
