The tallest and most elegant of the safari animals, the giraffe has been made into a small sculpture crafted from recycled flip-flops. The recycled flip-flops were collected from the beaches, waterways, and landfills in Kenya -- then, hand-carved by Kenyan artisans. This colorful giraffe would be a great addition to your home decor or function just as well as a garden accessory!
