Emma is made from 6 recycled, cleaned and shredded plastic bottles. When pressed, Emma plays the authentic whale sound.
WHALE..., Emma is the calmest whale in the Ocean. Unless you bring up Ocean Plastic Pollution. Through her immense travels all around the world, Emma has seen a lot. She cannot believe how much trash actually is floating in the ocean and are affecting all marine life daily. You might have heard of the great pacific garbage patch. It is a floating plastic garbage patch in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it is larger than 2x the size of Texas / 3x the size of France. This needs to change! Help Emma to keep plastics out of 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!
