Coconuts on the beach

A few months ago I had the pleasure of enjoying a real coconut while sitting on the beach.  I can assure you I wasn´t thinking about putting it on my feet.

Our friends at Cocoze are doing just that. They are creating flip flops like these made from Coconut fiber:

So why do they use coconut fiber to make their flip-flops?  According to Cocoze there are 8 great reasons:

1) 100% Natural and biodegradable

2) Coconuts are Abundant and accessible

3) Salt water resistant

4) Anti-bacterial

5) Anti-fungal

6) Helps keep you feet cool in hot weather

7) It is a natural exfoliator

8) Durability
