When it comes to making shoes, utilizing the trash that is washed up along the coasts and river banks hardly crosses one’s mind—but these three creatives have done just that.

For their project called Your Shoes Are Rubbish, Charles Duffy, William Gubbins, and Billy Turvey scoured England’s coasts and the banks of the Thames river to collect washed up plastic trash.

After collecting the trash, the trio sorted and processed it accordingly to create a colorful sheet with a vibrant splatter pattern that is then used in producing new pairs of shoes.

Watch how the trio created these shoes in the video below.
