Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo was blown away by Cavite-based toy maker Elmer Padilla‘s “Hulk” action figure, made out of recycled tsinelas. You may remember Padilla and his creations from a feature we posted last month.
Believe it or not, this #Hulk doll is made out of recycled tsinelas (that's tagalog for flip-flops). Elmer Padilla made this for me so I just wanted to give a nice shoutout. Not only is this inventively creative, but it's sustainable and just pure awesome! Thank you Elmer! pic.twitter.com/JiA4E91LjZ

“Not only is this inventively creative, but it’s sustainable and just pure awesome!” Ruffalo continued.
Elmer Padilla exclusively uses recycled tsinelas for his masterpieces, so it’s not surprising that his work resonated with the actor. Mark Ruffalo is an environmentalist and co-founder of the Solutions Project—an enterprise that focuses on clean, renewable energy for the world.
