- A selection of eco cleaning products for the home
Update 3 April 2020: Given the current circumstances, we will now be posting orders twice a week rather than our usual daily drop offs. This will usually be on a Tuesday and Saturday. This may mean your order takes a bit longer than usual to arrive. But we're confident it will be worth the wait!
Like everybody else, we at The Green Turtle are actively monitoring the current situation relating to coronavirus/covid-19 with our prime concern being the safety of everyone, especially our customers.
We use Royal Mail for our deliveries. They have confirmed that Public Health England has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels. This complements the highly publicised guidance for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water.
We are a small business, and your products and parcels are only handled by two people. We are following all of the guidance on cleaning, washing hands often and are both currently well.
Online orders can be a great way of ensuring you have some of the items you need. We are well stocked with soap bars, for example, which are just as effective as liquid soap in cleaning your hands. Just make sure you lather well and follow the 20 second guidance. Remember that soap and water is more effective than hand sanitizer, although that's great as an option when you're out and about.
We also stock lots of cleaning cloths and brushes to help you maintain a clean home. Items like laundry soapnuts and dishwashing soap bars might also be helpful if you're struggling to get these items.
Please do let us know if your order is a gift or care package for somebody and we would be happy to include a note with the package.
Finally, thank you for your support for a small business at this difficult time for everybody. We will of course keep this under review.
Keep safe everyone!

Can you live plastic-free?
There are now so many ways to make small changes to your lifestyle that can make a huge difference to your environmental impact. Ailsa shares Mum's top tips on making that initial change.
“It’s absurd to suggest we can do totally without plastic but there are so many areas where we use plastic without a thought”
Sir David Attenborough, 2018
Fantastic products, good packaging, a no quibble solution to meet Christmas deadline and such fantastic customer service from Lorna. Will definitely recommend this company, so helpful!
No wasteful plastic, keeps sandwiches fresh and tightly wrapped. My husband's colleagues are so impressed they are buying them too.
Soapnuts are a totally environmentally friendly way to do your washing, no power, no cardboard box and totally biodegradable. They can also be made into a wash for pets, household and shower, what's not to like!! I would highly recommend you try these, you will never look back.
This product is great! It smells lovely and totally works. Cant wait to try the other fragrances
My order was delivered quickly and I was excited to try out the Organic soapnut shells. I loved this product so much that I placed an order, the same day as I tried this product, for a larger quantity. I had a lovely note from The Green Turtle plus a note on the product to let me know how to use the nuts. Not only was my washing lovely and clean, it was softer than using detergents. I have already recommended this site and product to many friends. Great for the environment which is a huge plus x
Delighted with the straws!
Great quality, great range of sizes, the brush for cleaning that comes with them is just super and I got a mini handbag set as well! My son also thinks they are super cool which is always a bonus!
Fantastic value AND quality
An excellent purchase for our family- the bamboo brushes are excellent quality and come in a pack pre marked so we know who’s brush is who!
Fantastic Customer Service and Great Products!
Fast, efficient, customer friendly service and well-made, hard-wearing products! Bamboo cutlery has been great for taking into work etc. Easy to clean, very handy storage pouch and lightweight too. Highly recommend.
