Why would we stuff our plushies with recycled plastic?

Do you know how much trash is in the ocean? A. LOT. So much in fact that they form "trash islands"! These islands are made up of mostly plastic and are extremely harmful to our environment and health.

Staying true to being DINOS FOR GOOD, when we decided to make our Nawi plushies, we saw it as an opportunity to turn trash into something you and your little dinos could love. To help this widespread pollution problem, we use stuffing made up of recycled plastic bottles. So when you get one of our plushies, know that you are keeping these plastics out of our oceans and out of our bodies. And don't worry, our dinos are still super soft and great cuddle buddies!
