Shelly the Sea Turtle - Made from 6x plastic bottles
Hi! I'm Shelly 🐢
I'm Shelly the Sea Turtle, your eco-friendly companion on a mission to make a positive impact on our oceans.
Nice to meet you! 😃
At Shore Buddies we are on a mission to bring sustainability into Play. By using recycled materials, we not only reduce plastic waste but also teach children about the importance of recycling, conservation and the impact Ocean Plastic Pollution has on our environment.
Did you know?
Experts from WWF estimating that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans.
Whilst plastic has revolutionized our way of life since it was invented in 1907, the problem is that most plastic made since still exists. The amount of plastic in the oceans is expected to double in the next 15 years, and by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in our oceans.
There are giant plastic islands floating on the ocean surface, and beaches around the world are increasingly littered with plastic - even in the Arctic. It may come as a shock to know that most of the plastic in the ocean is out of sight, either underwater or on the ocean floor. But all has been generated on land. Plastic Pollution is a global issue and have been found on shores and beaches of all continents and even been found in the Mariana Trench, the deepest point in the ocean.
Shelly isn't just any stuffed animal – she's your educational companion. With the push of a button, Shelly plays the real sound of a sea turtle, allowing children to connect with these amazing creatures and develop a deeper understanding of their habitat.
This eco-friendly toy serves a higher purpose – it educates and inspires children to take action against ocean plastic pollution. By playing with Shelly, children learn the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling, instilling in them a sense of responsibility for our planet's future.
Shelly the Sea Turtle is perfect for grandparents who want to gift their grandchildren a meaningful and sustainable toy. Not only will they be providing hours of imaginative play, but they'll also be nurturing a sense of environmental stewardship from a young age.

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!
