Shore Buddies are the first stuffed animals made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles. It takes 6 plastic bottles to make one Shore Buddy. The different characters raise awareness about different issues with plastics (e.g., straws, bags, …) in our oceans. Each Shore Buddy also plays the authentic animal sound when pressed, literally giving marine life a voice. The book “Shore Buddies And the Plastic Ocean” is a great resource that shows where all this plastic really ends up, affecting marine life and gives tips on what everyone can do daily to keep plastics out of the ocean.
