Turtle Mat in the UK

Now here's a company I adore- Turtle Mat.

First of all I love their name (because I love turtles) and because they support the Marine Conservation Society which is the only charity in the UK dedicated to caring for the seas, shores and wildlife.

Through their Adopt-a-Turtle program they are working to save marine turtles from extinction. In the last year, Turtle Mat customers have helped raise over £5,000 through their adoption program.

To find out more about the Marine Conservation Society please visit their website:

So now you're probably wondering what Turtle Mat is and what they do, right? Well they sell mats - you know small carpets for your floor. For at your front door, for the kitchen for the bathroom, even for your pets. You know what they don't have though? A mat with a turtle design. They have ducks, flowers, even cupcakes but no turtles. Hmmm...

Anyway the mats are quite beautiful and other than no turtle designs they have a great selection. I love the red and the plum brocade styles, very elegant. But I got to love the whimsical cupcakes, don't you?

Eco-friendly, environmentally conscious and they offer great products. Turtle Mat's affinity for Turtles and their other eco-friendly initiatives make me wish I was in the UK:

Turtle Mats are manufactured by one of the world's largest and most eco-friendly textile groups which has achieved carbon negative status by planting one million trees every year and by producing green energy in its own hydroelectric plants. They are at the forefront of initiatives to reduce waste, cut water usage and use fewer chemicals.

In recognition of this, their production plant has been certified to ISO 14001:2004, as well as ISO 9001:2000, which are the highest global standards for quality products and environmental management.
