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 sell alternatives.
Plastic in our seas is a 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. Leatherback Turtles travel to British Waters looking for jellyfish. Sadly, they mistake our discarded plastic bags for their favourite food.
We work with our Fair Trade partners who share our environmental values to supply environmentally friendly bags. Inspired by turtles, our Turtle Bags are a practical reminder that plastic never goes away.
We are a company who like to lead the way in our work but remain true to our ethos. We have a long standing partnership with the Marine Conservation Society and donate 10% of our profits to them.
Harriet was really helpful. In our discussion she was quickly able to shine a light on the strengths and weaknesses of Turtle Bags and allowed me to visualise positive next steps for the company.
