I first got a Turtle Bag whilst visiting one of my best friends in Bristol and I hadn't brought any reusable bags with me - I had no idea how amazing they were! Made from organic cotton, these bags stretch like you wouldn't believe yet take up almost no space at all, so can easily be dropped in your backpack or pocket. You'll be surprised at how much Turtle Bags can carry - this long handle bottle green colour is a perfect everyday basic with the same capacity as the short handled bags. These are great for over the buggy, wheelchair or on your shoulder.


  • Perfect for groceries, the gym, the beach or shopping

  • Made from organic cotton, certified under the Global Oganic Textile  Standard (GOTS), meaning 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

  • Super long lasting (I've had mine for years!) - no more plastic bags or bulky bags for life

  • Machine washable

  • I stumbled upon Turtle Bags by mistake, but they're one of my favourite plastic free discoveries! As they expand to accommodate almost anything you want to hold, they are so much mroe versatile than canvas tote bags, yet take up almost zero space.

    Turtle Bags have been working to reduce our plastic consumption since way back in 2001 - they really are trailblazers. They share NUITW's concern about the plastic in our seas - a problem which is invisible to most of us in our daily lives, but one which will be causing problems for decades, disrupting food chains and suffocating sea life.

    Turtle Bags work with their fair trade partners who share their environmental values to supply environmentally friendly bags which enable you to completely cut out single use bags once and for all.
