Convenience and the desire for quick benefits have led us to a point where we're seriously damaging our planet and our health. The volume of plastic and the amount of chemicals present in our daily lives is becoming increasingly concerning.
But we all have busy lives to lead. It's hard to avoid plastic and make better eco choices when you have a million other things to do. It is impossible to be perfect!
I'm Lorna, and I set up The Green Turtle with the aim to make those eco choices easier, by providing a huge range of eco-friendly products for delivery across the UK.
Here you'll find environmentally-friendly alternatives to lots of your day-to-day products, whether that's beauty items that avoid plastic packaging and use natural ingredients, or kitchen products that do the job whilst helping you feel better about your impact on the environment. We are continually building our stock so check in regularly to see what's new.
My daughter Ailsa, along with many 12-year olds, engages with environmental issues and has fully embraced our change to a reduced waste lifestyle. It's so encouraging to see young people embrace a more sustainable way of living. Read her blog – she'd love to hear from you or your children, too.
