Nigerian artist Konboy uses old flip-flops to create colorful mosaic portraits.

Nigerian artist Konboy Ebipade Eugene has become a plastic pollution fighter in his city of Abeokuta in the Nigerian state of Ogun by creating mosaic portraits from old flip-flops. Only a small part of the waste is recycled in Nigeria, a country of about 210 million consumers. Every year, Nigeria dumps 200,000 tons of plastic into the Atlantic Ocean, the UN Industrial Development Organization said last year.
