Gandys Flip Flops
10% of all profits go directly into the Gandys Foundation to support orpahns in need of basic essentials.
Gandys Flip Flops have a life changing story behind them of two brothers with a purpose and vision to help others…
Everybody loves a great story that ignites, inspires and impels us.
Something that restores our faith in society and people and shows us that there is hope yet for the mankind.
Such is a story behind Gandys flip flops. A story about brothers who lost both of their parents in the 2004 tsunami but who turned that horrifying experience into something that brings hope and help to other orphaned children.
So – even though this is about flip flops, it’s about so much more than just flip flops.
Gandys Flip Flops Accessorize Exclusive
Gandys have teamed up with Accessorize to produce some stunning designs for beachwear flip flops.
What are they?
Technically – they’re flip flops. They’re made of 100 per cent rubber, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
As rubber is a natural product, these flip flops are eco-friendly and fully recyclable. Designed to be comfortable and durable they boast an original Gandys design complete with rope-style strap and Gandys logo.
A lot of thought has gone into producing and transporting the flip flops. They’re made in a factory in China but Gandys takes great pride in the fact that people manufacturing them are all of legal working age, are paid honest wage and have decent working conditions.
For transportation they use boats rather than cargo planes, thus trying to leave a smaller carbon footprint.
Also, if you decide to purchase a pair of Gandys you should know that not only are you going to be a proud owner of these stylish and comfy footwear but you’ll also be participating in a very worthwhile cause as 10 per cent of the profits go towards their Gandys Foundation, which helps orphans in India and aims to build children’s homes and schools in developing countries.

Why should you buy a pair?
If owning these truly great flip flops is not yet enough consider the good that your purchase can do. Gandys is much more than just a flip flop company. It has dedicated a lot of time, energy and thought to help and make this world a better place.
The brand was started by two brothers whose parents decided to take the whole family to travel the world and see the way other cultures live.
Tragic events in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami left the four children orphans but they never forget the principles and values held dear by their parents. This is how they got the idea to put their experiences into practice and help children in developing countries in the process. Thus the Orphans For Orphans initiative was born with the aim of helping orphaned kids with education, healthcare and support.
By the end of 2014, marking the 10th anniversary of the tsunami, the brothers are scheduled to open their first orphanage in India in the memory of their parents. From here they want to go on to open homes like that all around the world.
So if you take part in this initiative – either by purchasing a pair of Gandys flip flops or by donating to Orphans For Orphans, you get to be a part of this amazing incredible story of human strength and kindness.
