Upcycled Shopping Bag - Green
We LOVE a bit of upcycling and these shopping bags are a perfect example.
Made from recycled cement bags, they are as unique as they are practical.
They are strong and sturdy, very well made and secure. They are cotton lined, the whole bag zips closed and there's also a zip compartment inside.
Turtle Bags are GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) which means no chemical pesticides or fertilisers are used in the production of the fabric and farmers work in safe conditions with a fair wage.
We use British made products wherever possible, however we make some exceptions. Turtle Bags are providing safe and fair employment for economically disadvantaged people in Bangladesh and are a registered importer with BAFTS (British Association for Fair Trade Shops)
The cement bags are made by a women's empowerment programme in Dhaka.
