Meet the team...
Daniel conceived Jolly Turtle in January 2020 with a clear ambition; to be able to make a difference without it incurring big or expensive changes to daily life.
Daniel’s entrepreneurial spirit led to the realisation that daily lunches around the world can be single-use plastic-free reusable sandwich bags and reusable yoghurt pots carried to school or work in a reusable foldaway bag! Simple!
Daniel’s passions include snorkelling, exploring, fish, and animals – preferably in places that are sunny and warm!

In the last decade, our plastic creation and wastage has increased exponentially. Worldwide, we produce 300 million tons of plastic each year, half of which is for single-use items. Our marine life is subjected to the influxes of plastic waste in their habitats, with nearly 40% of our oceans’ surfaces contaminated with plastic waste. Scientists predict that at the current rate our plastic wastage will outweigh all the fish in the sea by 2050. The increasing dangers this is causing to the wildlife in our oceans is substantial; creatures such as the Sea Turtle eat these plastics mistaking them for food, causing irreversible damage including to critically endangered species.
We at Jolly Turtle have a vision to assist in making our world a more sustainable place to live, by creating affordable, high quality products that will help reduce plastic creation and waste. The elimination of certain single-use plastics such as carrier bags, fresh produce packaging, and straws are just a small step to preserving our seas and oceans, and we are committed in taking positive steps towards creating a better environment for our oceanic wildlife again.
Jolly Turtle is a proud member of Big Blue Ocean Cleanup, a global charity that dedicates itself to cleaning our oceans and assisting the marine life therein. Jolly Turtle Ltd will donate 10% of our proceeds of every sale to this charity, enabling our customers to be part of the mission to reduce plastic waste in our oceans.
