Non Plastic Beach has teamed up with the Nature Trust (Malta) to launch a turtle pack to help fund the charity’s rescue, rehabilitation and release efforts.
AVAILABLE IN THREE SIZES
The original pack features:
- Turtley Awesome Handmade Shower Soap – Mojito scented, palm oil free, vegan friendly
- Cast Iron Soap Dish
- Green Non Plastic Beach Bamboo Toothbrush
- 10% of proceeds go to Nature Trust (Malta) Turtle Rescue
KIDS PACK: Includes a green Kids Bamboo Toothbrush instead of adult
FAMILY PACK: Includes 4 Bamboo Toothbrushes (green and white adult, green and white kids)
Launched on World Turtle Day, the pack features Turtley Awesome, a palm-oil free, plastic free shower soap in a recyclable cardboard box. The soap conjures up the spirit of the Mojito cocktail, scented with lime and mint.
- Palm-oil free soap products
- Vegan friendly
- Cruelty free
- BPA free bristles
- Recyclable packaging
To rest the shower soap on and maximise its life we have a turtle shaped cast iron soap dish in verdant green. The last piece of the pack is a Non Plastic Beach Bamboo Toothbrush, in a new and never before seen colour, which introduces green handle and bristles to the range for the first time.
The soap and toothbrush are in recyclable or compostable cardboard boxes and the turtle needs no packaging at all.
The partnership came about after we planned our visit to the rocky Mediterranean Island of Malta in December 2018. We arranged to meet with Executive Director of Nature Trust (Malta), Vincent Attard, and after seeing the work came up with a scheme to help fund the dedicated 24 hour rescue team and the efforts to build a larger rehabilitation facility.
Nature Trust (Malta) has been rescuing turtles for 24 years, rescuing over 300 of the endangered creatures in that time. The Trust has seen an increasing number of turtles impacted by plastic pollution, by ingesting it or entangling their flippers in it. The Trust rehabilitates the injured sea turtles and releases them back into the wild, on occasion with a GPS tracker to track their progress after they are back in the sea.
Nature Trust (Malta) also announces rescues, releases and progress of their patients on their Facebook page: https://en-gb.facebook.com/naturetrustmalta/
