About

Cuddle Earth is a new environmental project on a mission to tackle the growing issue of plastic pollution invading coastlines around the world. In turn, we will be protecting the wildlife that is affected by this issue. We want our project to lead the change in the reduction of plastic pollution and the protection of our coastline. The sales from our products are driving our targets for our beach clean events that we organise and run.

Not only do we want to help wave goodbye to plastic pollution, we want to create a movement of environmental advocates who are as passionate as we are in helping to build a sustainable future for us and our precious wildlife.

Beyond creating products that we love; we wanted to ensure the materials we used were sustainable. 

This is why we have created our own range of ethical products that will support us on our journey in waving goodbye to plastic pollution and protecting our precious wildlife. 

Introducing our brand-new ethical range! 

  Organic Seal Pups

We have created our own organic seal pup!

Our seal pup is the perfect cuddly friend for anyone who is passionate about helping to protect our environment.  

These adorable seal pups come in two different sizes:


Standard Sized Seal

Large Seal

Our organic seals have been lovingly created using 100% natural, organic and GOTS certified cotton for its soft and snuggly exterior, whilst it’s stuffing is made from recycled PET plastic. 

All materials that have been used to create our adorable seal pups are 100% child safe and ready to become someones new cuddly companion!


Recycled Cuddle Earth Wristband 

We have also created our own reversible wristband made from 100% recycled polyester. This wristband is a Kickstarter exclusive, a special creation to kickstart our journey in protecting our environment! 

On one side of the wristband there is a striking pattern of our logo, and on the other side we have incorporated a design that is not only completely unique, but one which serves as a reminder of the difference you have made with your Kickstarter purchase.


Bamboo Keyring

We have created a bespoke wooden keyring with a unique design that show’s exactly how much you have helped by making your purchase. A small but special purchase of our keyring will make all the difference in cleaning our beaches. 


Materials Used

All materials that have been used to create our ethical product range are free from pesticides, GMO’s, synthetic fertilisers, and toxic dyes. 

We wanted to use sustainable materials to create a product range which we hope will inspire others to join us on our mission to protect our environment and reduce the use of single use plastic.

To ensure we won’t be contributing to the problem of plastic waste, all our packaging is 100% recyclable and free of plastic.

Today, plastic is one of the biggest threats to our environment. We cannot escape from the fact that plastic is polluting our seas, spoiling our coastline and endangering wildlife. 

There is estimated to be around 5.25 trillion macro and micro-plastic pieces floating in the open ocean. Consequently, tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals, and turtles are killed every year from plastic waste in the marine environment, as they often mistake waste such as plastic bags for food or become entangled in plastic packaging.

Plastic consumption is at an all-time high. Our society has recognised that there is a problem, but not enough is being done to help tackle this issue. 

We are now determined to help create vital awareness around the threat of plastic pollution and the ways we can all help to fight against it.

This issue isn’t going to go away by itself – it’s time to make a difference!

Our project is completely funded by the Cuddle Earth store, which is why we need your support to help fight against plastic waste on our coastline.

The money raised through our Kickstarter campaign will be spent on the manufacturing of our brand new products. Our toys, bracelets and keyrings are the tools we have created to raise further awareness about plastic pollution.

Rather than making donations to a charity and passing on the problem, we work tirelessly to arrange and carry out beach cleans and use our sales figures to drive our targets.

We hope that our project will inspire others to join us on our mission to protect our environment, reduce their use of single use plastic and ultimately the amount of plastic waste that makes its way into the sea.  

The need for cleaner and safer beaches is what drives our project. But what is also important to us and our mission is that we inspire individuals and especially the next generation to help look after our planet as much as they can.

As part of our work we will host our own beach cleans which we hope will show younger generations the importance of looking after our planet. From the awareness we create through our ethical range and campaign, we will be able to create a movement of advocates nationwide who will join us on our beach cleans.

The pledge that you make is truly important to us. Your pledge will directly help with the production of our products, and through our products, we will be able to create vital awareness about plastic pollution that our world so desperately needs.

It is essential that we act now in order to make sure the shocking statistics surrounding plastic pollution don’t get any worse!

Risks and challenges

We are working extremely hard to produce our ethical product range; we are so excited for you to receive your order! There is always a risk that suppliers do not deliver on time due to unforeseen circumstances. But every day we are working closely with our manufacturers to make sure that everything stays on track.

To ensure that there are no delays, we have added some buffer time which we have scheduled accordingly around our launch to ensure that everything moves forward smoothly.

You will be receiving frequent updates about our progress and most importantly when we will be sending out your orders. If there are any blips along the way, we will be sure to let you know. But, we are confident in our suppliers and in ourselves that we will deliver the most efficient service.

Sustainable materials

All materials that have been used to create our ethical product range are free from pesticides, GMO’s, synthetic fertilisers, and toxic dyes. We wanted to use sustainable materials to create a product range which we hope will inspire others to join us on our mission to protect our environment and reduce the use of single use plastic.
