"I've always thought that plastic bags are ridiculous in that they are designed to last forever, but are actually only used for around three to four hours." Beth Williams the founder of Turtle Bags
The focus of Turtle Bags is to provide both practical and stylish alternatives to plastic bags through an ethical supply chain and to raise awareness of harmful plastic pollution.
The concept of Turtle Bags was inspired by Turtles: these ancient creatures were around on the planet when the dinosaurs were here. There are five species of turtles which visit us in the UK. They travel thousands of kilometres in the summer months looking in particular for jellyfish. The most frequently sighted turtles are the leatherback. Tragically the biggest member of the turtle family is prone to mistaking the discarded bags that litter the world's oceans with jellyfish - its only source of food.
