Our first donation check

Shore Buddies is much more than a typical beach souvenir. From the very beginning, one of our main focuses is giving back to the community and help sustaining the local environment.

With every Shore Buddies product purchased, we donate $1 to the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter to protect and preserve our beloved oceans, waves and beaches.

Yesterday, CEO Malte Niebelschuetz happily presented the first check of $ 1,000 to the Surfrider Foundation Chapter Manager Haley Haggerstone at the July chapter meeting in San Diego, CA.

“This is just the beginning,”, Malte Niebelschuetz said; “we are looking forward to handing over more, and even bigger checks, in the near future.”

But it is not only about the money, Shore Buddies is as environmental friendly as it gets. Recycled material is used wherever possible and Shore Buddies is completely avoiding any non-disposable plastic attachments on its products. Also, each animal comes with a hang-tag with three little “What you can do:” tips to reduce the environmental footprint.

“Folks out there are looking for a souvenir that sustains more than memories nowadays.” Malte Niebelschuetz continued; “With our excellent partner, we are happy to support a good cause and protect our local coastline and preserve ocean wild-life. We are very thankful for all the great work and the continuous effort this organization and this very chapter with its tremendous volunteers, is pulling off every single day. We are also looking forward to a great collaboration and bringing this partnership to the next level in the months to come.”
