Turtle Bags was established back in 2001 when plastic bags were spilling off the end of our super market tills as a way of raising awareness of the hazards of plastic bags and sell alternatives. The name of the brand was inspired by the very special Leatherback Turtle, a species who travel to British Waters looking for Jellyfish. Sadly the turtles mistake our discarded plastic bags for their favourite food.
Plastic in our seas is a problem which is invisible to most of us in our daily lives but will be cause problems for many decades to come disrupting food chains and suffocating sea-life. We must all take steps to rid the world of plastic. These string bags are certainly a good first step!
