Wildlife Entanglement

Marine wildlife death by entanglement is something we should all be aware of. Thousands of miles and literally tons of derelict rope and fishing nets are littered into our water.

I found out that there are 682 beaches out there. We must keep them clean and safe in order to sustain life on this planet. So let’s support a good cause and help clean up fishing nets!

♫ you can never have too many platform boots ♫

I have yet to try this one… what a great way to give a new life to the flipflops hanging around at home.

Want to have your own pair of these amazing sneaker Creepers?

INGREDIENTS:
  • Flat Lace ups shoes- Could be Vans, Converse or high tops –High Tops provide more support for your ankles) ,
