How To Recycle Your OKA b. Flip Flops and Sandals

OKA b. recycles

At OKA b. we pride ourselves on being an eco-friendly company practicing continuous loop recycling. Our low-waste factory in Buford, Georgia recycles everything from sandals and flip flops to boxes and other raw materials. We encourage all of our loyal customers to recycle. It's so easy!

Simply send your well-loved OKA b. flip flops and sandals to us at the following address to be recycled:

4823 Roy Carlson Blvd.
Buford, GA 30518
ATTN: RECYCLING

Here's How It Works:
Once we receive the shoes, they are ground into small usable particles that are blended at a specific weight ratio with unused material.  Each color is segregated and fed into a gravimeter blender (good cocktail party lingo) that combines regrind, virgin material, and color concentrate at a specific ratio that is fed directly into our machines. To maintain our stringent mechanical tolerances we do not blend more than 20% of recycled material when making new shoes.  Any material that is deemed unusable in our process is sold to a company that turns it into industrial mats. We currently sell less than 3% of our total material.
