About Us

Sustainability Practices

At CoastalWonderZ, we place a strong emphasis on minimizing our carbon footprint. As part of our commitment to sustainability, we strive to use recycled materials for our packaging whenever feasible. We collaborate with local businesses, as well as friends and family, who generously save and donate their packaging materials to us. By working together, we are making a positive impact and doing our part to protect the environment.

All of our shells, urchins, starfish, and other goods are all ethically and sustainably sourced. We recognize that our business is not possible without our planets limited natural resources, so we take every precaution to ensure that our goods are taken within environmental regulations and are not housing any living creatures. 


CoastalWonderZ has established exciting partnerships with two great local restaurants for our oyster shells. If you find yourself in the Northeast Wisconsin area and have a hankering for mouthwatering oysters on the half shell, we recommend checking out these two establishments:

A special thank you goes out to Spivey Logistics, LLC of Appleton Wisconsin and Interiors on Madison of Little Chute Wisconsin for teaming up with us to make our sustainable packaging efforts possible. Their support and collaboration have played a crucial role in our ongoing commitment to reducing waste and preserving the environment. We are grateful for their partnership in helping us make a positive impact.
