Grass (Flower??) Sandals

grass sandals

Kripsy Kreme (a company famous for their glazed donuts) is now making grass sandals, so urbanites can reconnect with Mother Earth.

From KK:
“Krispy Kreme questioned over 1,000 UK workers and found that over half (53 per cent) of urbanites believe their stress levels are affected by a lack of contact with Mother Nature. In response to the problem Krispy Kreme has created the world’s first grass flip-flops to bring summer magic to the city giving stressed out workers a (literal) spring in their step by creating an instant grassy park underneath their feet regardless of their urban location.”

Hey Krispy Kreme – have we got the game for you! How about a cross-promotional tie-in here?
