Meet the US Army Rangers who have an aggressive business strategy to make cool products, and save war-torn countries one flip flop at a time.
There will always be a need for rough men to do dangerous work against evil people. There is no question about that, and there never will be. However, when those rough men engage their brains as weapons of mass construction, they can make equally impacting changes in a war-torn country.
Enter the owners of Combat Flip-Flops. Army Rangers who traveled to Afghanistan, and saw individuals who were smart, hard-working, and creative. They lowered their weapons and made a conscious decision to bring the fight to the enemy in a different way. A way that showed people in these areas that they too, could achieve a higher standard of living through honest means.
Combat Flip Flops has a powerful message, and a great mission.
THE MISSION: To create peaceful, forward-thinking opportunities for self-determined entrepreneurs affected by conflict. Our willingness to take bold risks, community connection, and distinct designs communicate, “Business, Not Bullets”–flipping the view on how wars are won. Through persistence, respect, and creativity, we empower the mindful consumer to manufacture peace through trade. -Combat Flip Flops Mission Statement
As of today, February 6, 2016, their flip flop production has cleared 1,533 square feet of landmines and UXO, as well as putting Afghan women in secondary school for 60.20 years.
