Emma the Whale is an environmental advocate raising awareness about the insidious issue of microplastics in our oceans. As an eco-friendly companion, she's on a mission to combat microplastic pollution and inspire positive change.
Did you know that microplastics, tiny particles of plastic less than 5 millimeters in size, have become a pervasive problem in our marine ecosystems? These minuscule fragments come from various sources, such as the breakdown of larger plastics, microbeads in personal care products, and fibers from synthetic textiles. Unfortunately, they pose a significant threat to marine life and the health of our oceans.
Emma is here to shed light on this pressing issue. Her story serves as a reminder of the importance of reducing microplastic pollution and making sustainable choices in our daily lives.
As an educational companion, Emma is a 12" stuffed whale made from recycled plastic bottles and uses sustainable materials. She encourages children to learn about microplastics and their impact on marine ecosystems. With her friendly demeanor and captivating sound, Emma creates an emotional connection, inspiring children to take action and protect the oceans they love.
By adopting sustainable habits like reducing the use of single-use plastics, choosing natural fiber clothing, and using eco-friendly personal care products, we can collectively reduce the release of microplastics into our oceans.

The plastic materials are PET. We source plastic bottles, such as water bottles, soda bottles, shampoo bottles, etc.
We are collecting the plastic before it ends up in the ocean or landfills. Only 20% of all plastic is recycled. With Shore Buddies we are giving a solution and an example of what can be made if we recycle more efficiently.
Shore Buddies are made in our factories in China. The recycled material is collected from recycling facilities in China and South East Asia.
We are working on a recycling initiative to take back no longer wanted Shore Buddies to dispose them probably and/ or donate them to children hospitals if still possible. Stay tuned!
Sadly, we do not accept bottle donations in order to produce our Shore Buddies. We strongly encourage you to collect pop bottles and bring them to your local recycling center!
