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. Leatherback turtles travel to European 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.
These short handled organic cotton bags are certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which means no chemical pesticides or fertilisers are used in the production of the of the fabric and farmers must work under safe conditions with an agreed minimum wage. They are naturally super strong (40kg) and scrunch up easily to fit in your handbag or pocket ready for next time.
Ethically sourced, eco-friendly, 100% organic cotton, re-usable, they are great for grocery, shopping and perfect for the beach.
Available in natural and black colour.
String bags can be washed in the machine at 30 degrees and hung to dry. Due to the natural fibres, there can be some shrinkage from their original size when washed first time. These will stretch a bit again with use.
