Axol & Friends is a socially-conscious startup that designs characters in the image of endangered plant and animal life. Our goal is to raise awareness of rare endangered species while also raising money to empower youth to be activists and environmental conservationists.

Our products are all designed in the image of endangered species of plant and animal life. 

A portion of every sale is donated to our youth empowerment programs, because we believe kids can change the world! We currently have programs in Mexico and Thailand.

We are committed to sustainability and thrive to be as eco-conscious as possible. From the idea stage to the hands of our customers, we have taken steps to reject plastics, reduce emission, and even offset our carbon footprint by planting trees.

Thank you for joining our movement!

    One Plush and “The Story Begins” Book

    Our first book in the series of tales about Axol the axolotl and Java the pangolin. This book focuses on Axol and their life in Mexico City and the special day when they met Java the Pangolin for the very first time! (We use gender neutral pronouns for Axol because we feel it is not necessary to assign a gender for Axol. It does not have any impact on the character or the plot. We welcome customers to identify their plushies however they wish)
