Episode 001 Malte Niebelschetz - Turning ocean plastic pollution into marine wildlife stuffed animals
Malte Niebelschetz is the founder of Shore Buddies, an innovative conservation focused small business that is turning ocean plastic pollution into marine wildlife stuffed animals for all ages. Shore Buddies are stuffed animals made from recycled plastic bottles. It takes 6x plastic bottles to make one of the 12" stuffed animals and 2x plastic bottles to make one of the famous keychains.
From sea gull to seal, and dolphin to a brand new turtle character - Malte's team is finding ways to connect with children so the next generation is inspired to take action, prevent pollution, and solve environmental problems with innovative solutions.
In this episode Malte shares how he was inspired to recycle plastic into toys and his love for the ocean.
