Turtle Bags was founded by Beth Williams in 2001 to raise awareness of the dangers of plastic litter in the ocean. Since sea turtles often confuse plastic bags with their favorite food, the jellyfish, the organization has decided to produce environmentally friendly and reusable bags to offer an alternative to the conventional and widely used plastic bags. Turtle Bags is also committed to fair and ethical trading practices.
In the meantime, the Turtle Bags range has grown and has been supplemented with various handcrafted jute bags. The various reusable bags are all very robust. Their modern design gives them a timelessness so that they can find their way onto the streets and markets of the world as a fashion accessory.
