Natural Rubber Planet Flops Review {Sponsor Highlight}

Our sponsor, Planet Flops, creates Eco friendly natural rubber flip flops that are a sustainable summer wardrobe staple. They come in a myriad of great colors and combinations, I chose the Vanilla Anise combination of grey/beige flops that are neutral and go well with every outfit. The size 7/8 fit great, I normally wear a 7.5. 

The first thing I noticed and I'm sure you will, is the absence of a strong chemical smell that most petroleum based synthetic flip flops are made of. Then I remembered the good old days before the onslaught of everything synthetic from China, I remember how people wore flip flops only to the pool or beach and yes, they were made of rubber back in 1990 in my native country of Russia. These are made in Brazil, where the rubber tree is so abundant. The sap is gathered from the trees, they are never cut down. For every pair you buy, Planet Flops plants a tree. The flops are completely biodegradable! Plus if you want to recycle them once they are worn out, you can send them to Planet Flops and they will give you a 10% discount on your next order. 

Just for the record, I don't like my feet, skinny and without a pedicure. Sigh. 

The rubber flip flops are very comfortable and perfect for hot weather. I love this color because it doesn't get hot in the sun. They are cushy soft and though they do resemble their synthetic counterparts, once you wear them you'll be able to tell the difference. At first glance I thought that the top part is made of rubber and the sole is synthetic, but I was assured that it is rubber as well. It certainly doesn't smell like a synthetic sole. The flops retail for $28 each and $30 for wedge flip flops. They also have kids rubber flip flops!  If you win, you can choose whatever size and color you want!

Come back May 14th to 27th during the Summer Splash Event and enter to win a pair of Planet Flops ($28) as part of one of two $250 prize packages!
