Surprisingly, these two elephants are made from old flip-flops. There is a Kenyan recycling company called Ocean Sole that makes pieces of art and fashion from discarded flip-flops and other plastic junk that washes up on the beach.

According to CNN:

old sandals and other polluting pieces of rubber are fashioned into handmade animal toys, eye-popping curtains, intricate necklaces and even life-size sculptures. The playful creations are sold locally as well as in dozens of zoos, aquariums and stores in some 20 countries across the wold.
