These classic organic cotton String Bags by Turtle Bags were created back in 2001, offering consumers an alternative to plastic bags and to raise awareness of the hazardous impact plastic bags were having on our environment. At that time, plastic bags were spilling out over the supermarket checkouts and until fairly recently, people were unaware of how huge the plastic pollution problem had become on land and in our oceans.

As well as being endlessly reusable, these string bags are super strong, durable and can carry up to 40kg. A must have for plastic-free grocery shopping, or anything else you wish to use them for. Turtle Bags have been voted one of the top 10 Best bags for life, according to the Independent newspaper.

This short handled version is also available in Blush, Bottle Green and Black. A long handle and kids version is also available.
