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.
In addition to the well-being of sea creatures and the environment, Turtle Bags is also committed to fair trade practices and ethical supply chains, and are registered with The British Association for Fair Trade Shops & Suppliers.
This jute bag is hand woven in rural Bangladesh by women in a female uplift programme, that helps to establish a fair and poverty free society through the economic empowerment of women.
It is made from 100% jute – a sturdy, naturally grown fibre that once woven creates one of the most eco-friendly fabrics in the world.
It’s robust and long-lasting; giving you enough storage space and durability to get a good shop’s worth of groceries inside. Two handles at the top give you a good grip and make carrying comfortable and easy.
Switch to a stylish tote to reduce the number of plastic bags you use on shopping trips.
Fair trade, eco-friendly, 100% jute, re-usable, they are great for grocery, shopping and perfect for the beach.
Size: 40 x 40 cm
