Okabashi's New 100% Recyclable Maui Flip Flop for Women

Okabashi's Innovative Maui Flip Flops Are Dishwasher-Safe, Recyclable and Provide Relief for Foot and Back Pain

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  Okabashi Brands, Inc., the only major manufacturer of sandals and flip flops in the United States, today announced its new Maui Flip Flop line for the 2010 Spring and Summer season. The Maui flip flop is crafted with feminine styling, massage beads and excellent arch support. While being joyfully comfortable, the Maui's massaging insole stimulates nerve endings to improve foot circulation and reduce foot pain. The supportive arch and heel give the foundation necessary for proper posture, alignment and back pain relief. Okabashi's Maui Flip Flops can be found online at for under $20.00 in a range of enticing colors.

Like all 2010 Okabashis, the Maui is dishwasher-safe -- it will not shrink or lose its vibrant color with frequent high temperature washing. High dishwasher temperatures destroy germs, viruses and bacteria that are often picked up in public places. Like using hand sanitizer to protect the body from illness, it is important to sanitize sandals and flip flops to protect feet from disease.

While caring for the woman who wears it, the Maui also cares for the environment in which she lives. The Maui is 100% recyclable, made of up to 30% recycled material and is vegan friendly. When Mauis are well-worn and well-loved, they may be returned to Okabashi for free closed-loop recycling; Okabashi can use the plastics in the Maui to make new shoes.
