THE STORY OF TURTLE BAGS

Way back in 2001 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 sell alternatives. 

Plastic in our seas is invisible to most of us in our daily lives but is causing problems and for many decades will be disrupting food chains and suffocating sealife.

Turtle Bags work with fair trade partners who share their environmental values to supply environmentally friendly bags.
