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 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.  Inspired by turtles, our Turtle Bags are a practical reminder that plastic never goes away

​Turtle Bags are based in Worcestershire in the UK and they work with their fair trade partners who share their environmental values to supply environmentally friendly bags.
