Turtle Bags

Way back in 2002 when plastic bags were still spilling off the end of our supermarket tills, Turtle Bags was established to raise awareness of the hazards of plastic bags and to offer alternatives.

Plastic in our seas is a serious, ongoing problem which is invisible to most of us in our daily lives, but will be causing problems for many decades disrupting food chains and suffocating sea life. Turtles travel to British Waters looking for jellyfish, but sadly they mistake our discarded plastic bags for their favourite food.

Turtle Bags work with their Fair Trade partners who share their environmental values to supply environmentally friendly bags. Inspired by turtles, Turtle Bags are a practical reminder that plastic never goes away.

Turtle Bags are a company who like to lead the way in their work but remain true to their ethos. They have a long standing partnership with the Marine Conservation Society and they donate 10% of their profits to them.
