At Blue Turtle Store we provide quality, reusable tote bags that people love. Our mission is to help reduce plastic waste in our oceans and support conservation efforts for sea turtles.
Sadly, plastic waste is having a negative impact on the world we live in. An estimated 4.8 to 12.7 million metric tonnes of plastic entered the world’s oceans in 2010. That’s about 282 to 747 school buses weight worth of plastic waste. The volume of plastic waste is increasing drastically every year.
We know that thousands of turtles die from ingesting this plastic waste. Scientists estimate that globally, approximately 52% of all sea turtles have ingested plastic. We also know young turtles are more likely to eat plastic and that about 40% of them won’t survive. Worldwide, six of the seven sea turtle species are either threatened or endangered. Change is needed if we’re going to help turtles and other marine life survive.
We believe that together, we can make a difference. By choosing reusable bags you can help to reduce plastic waste in our oceans and on our planet. Join us and make a difference by choosing to reuse.
We donate ten percent of our profits to turtle conservation programs.
