10 BASIC Balance + Stability Moves You Need to Try Today

You Sure Must Meet the Shore Buddies

Just when I thought it was over. As I've done so many times before, I declared that it was over. No more new plush toys were to be purchased, gifted, or adopted by our family. Then we met the Shore Buddies. Who are the 
Shore Buddies? They're a cuddly collection of plush stuffed animals made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Each Shore Buddy plush meets toy safety standards and features a realistic sound recorded by a professional marine biologist scientist for a truly authentic experience. A donation of 
$1.00 for the ocean is contributed with every purchase. Be still my eco-friendly heart! The Shore Buddies Mission is- "We strive to save marine life by educating our youth on the dangers of plastics for marine life and keeping plastics out of our oceans." I'm excited to partner with Shore Buddies to do my part to protect marine life, our oceans, and our planet. We need your support, too. First, you sure must meet the Shore Buddies!

Recycled bottles are collected, cleaned, and shredded into plastic flakes. These flakes are used for the Shore Buddies' stuffing and also melted into polyester yarn for the soft plush.
Would you believe it takes six recycled plastic bottles to make one 12" Shore Buddy? I'm excited to introduce you to all of the lovable Shore Buddies and a fantastic way to reduce, reuse, recycle.
