Meet the bear and his friend the salmon (who stays in the bear’s mouth with a magnet) that are plastic free! Many stuffed animals contain pouches of plastic beads (nurdles), the same ones we find on shorelines, and in the ocean; that’s why this bear only offers nurdle-free hugs! Tags are hand sewn and fabric is used for hanging to replace the small plastic hook tags.
