With more plastic than fish in our seas a possibility by 2050 according to some predictions, our reliance on plastic is clear. Plastic pollution in our seas is a huge problem right now and not just in the UK. It is invisible to most of us in our daily lives but will be causing problems for many decades disrupting food chains and suffocating sealife.
Leatherback Turtles often travel to British waters and due to the fact that plastic single use bags get discarded and end up in our waters, these turtles often mistake those bags for jellyfish.
Turtle Bags who were established in 2001 were inspired by turtles as a reminder that plastic never goes away.
Turtle bags are a gentle alternative to plastic bags.
They are made in India and produced under ethical conditions.
Turtle Bags have been successfully audited by the WWF for their environmental practices
