The Artwork

The art work is from an original by Ian. It’s based on a specimen that was sadly found washed up on the beach near Abersoch in 1978. It weighed nearly 350kg and measured 205.74 cm from nose to tail. Ian was lucky enough to be able to get up close to the beautiful creature when he was working at Cardiff museum.

Turtles have been washing up for many years now with plastic in their stomachs. One of the main problems for turtles is that they see plastic bags floating in the sea and mistake them for jellyfish, their main source of food. Because of the way the turtles throat is, once they ingest the plastic bag, they cannot spit it out! They can go on to suffocate from the plastic in their throats.

We all have a responsibility to reduce our plastic waste to save these magnificent creatures!

Be has made the puppet pictured entirely from beach plastic (apart from his gorgeous T-shirt of course) He accompanies us to events to highlight to youngsters the difference they can make by being more conscious of their plastic waste.

You can read more about the leather back turtle in Ian’s blog 

10% of profits from these t-shirts will go to #2minutebeachclean. We love the work they’re doing showing that everyone can make a difference to the plastic pollution problem in just 2 minutes! They say – ‘We believe that every piece of litter removed from the beach matters. So it doesn’t matter if you do 2 minutes or 30. Each and every piece of marine plastic removed from the beach is a piece that will no longer go on to kill.’ And we couldn’t agree more!
