Light Bulb Moment. from Design to Market
Hear from Alex Bruce a local young entrepreneur who brought his Turtle Straws to market in May 2018 following and spurred on by Blue Planet II and the viral video of a Turtle with a straw in its nose, he came up with Turtle Straws a single use straw alternative that he saw bars and restaurants being able to get behind
In 2019 Turtle Straws supplied 2 million Straws in over 35 countries. Alex also has a passion for learning as much as he can about climate change and the effect plastic pollution is having on it. Educating and helping people understand the minefield of waste reduction as well as supplying as many planet friendly straws as possible are his two main missions.
His plan is to improve his processes and make Turtle Straws a recognisable brand first in Hampshire and then the rest of the UK.
