About Turtle Bags


Turtle Bags started creating their bags in 2001 in response to the lack of ethically-sourced reusable plastic-free shopping bags. Why the name Turtle Bags? One of the company’s main concerns is that when we eventually discard our plastic bags here in the UK, they travel along rivers and streams and eventually end up out at sea. Turtles venturing into UK waters encounter them, and are increasingly mistaking our rubbish as one of their favourite snacks, the jellyfish. The amount of Turtles now found dead with plastic bags inside of them is truly devastating. We have five different species of turtle which venture into British waters, most predominantly the Leatherback Turtle.  These creatures have been around for 100 million years, and are certainly worth protecting.  Try a Turtle Bag today and be part of the solution!
