Routinely ranked as one of America’s favorite beaches, Tybee Island is a little pocket of paradise with beaches on its eastern shore and salt marshes on its western. Gurus ($29.99, www.ILoveGurus.com) is a new brand of sustainable sandal whose bohemian streak matches the island’s unfussy vibe.

Sourced from biodegradable natural rubber, Gurus are an eco-friendly flip-flop with a single strap over the arch of the foot and a detached thong that fits between the toes. The sandals are both functional and comfortable, an original design inspired from the wooden sandals favored by Mahatma Gandhi.

The sandals come in a beachy color palette that includes mint green, mango orange, monsoon (light blue) and coconut white. They’re perfect for strolling Tybee Island’s beaches and shops and, because of the thick but soft soles, will even stand up to the uneven pavement of Savannah’s River Street for an afternoon of sightseeing.

Gurus are the brainchild of Prem Thomas and Joe Choorapuzha, who funded their company through a Kickstarter campaign. For every pair of Gurus sold, the company plants a tree.
