Turtle Savers Metal Straws
TURTLE SAVERS was established in 2018, with a vision to reduce the estimated 9.5 billion single-use plastic straws per year being dumped in our oceans and environment.
Our plan was to develop a family pack of multicoloured reusable straws made from stainless steel with enough metal straws for a small party or family gathering.
To set ourselves apart we developed the TURTLE SAVERS TM brand that both highlights our ambition and to create a selfie opportunity and create a movement.
Our figurehead became the enigmatic Turtle. Selected because of its ancient history and its vulnerability in our ecosystem today.
Many types of turtles are currently on the endangered list and some are close to extinction. We felt compelled to give the turtles a voice and the brand was born.
We also decided from the start that we wanted to create a profitable business and not a charity. We managed to do this with the initial investment from our Founder Mr Paul Gibson.
All revenue from metal straw sales will go into rebuying stock, running the business with all net profits will be donated to Turtle conservation projects around the world.
Our aim for 2018 – 19 is to sell 1,000 packs of metal straws to reduce half a million single-use plastic straws leaking into our oceans.
We would be honoured if you buy a pack and become a #turtlesaver because #plasticsucks
