Mark Ruffalo marvels at ‘tsinelas’ Hulk action figure by Pinoy toy maker

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),” said Ruffalo on Instagram and Twitter.

“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.

If you want to see more of Elmer Padilla’s work, show him some love and follow him on his Instagram profile here.
