We at Yellow Turtle, experts in kids clothing and kids gear, are excited to introduce you to a few of our FAVORITE COMPANIES, including eco friendly backpacks and eco friendly lunch bags, that not only make packing school lunches easier but are also working hard to minimize our collective impact on the environment.



Here’s some food for thought:

One million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and only 1 in 5 water bottles are recycled globally. It can take up to a thousand years for a plastic bottle to breakdown in a landfill. … YIKES.


Parkland’s mission is to reduce the number of water bottles in landfills. They make backpacks and lunch boxes that are durable and designed for individuality, fun and everyday life. More importantly, the exterior of all of Parkland’s products are made from recycled water bottles. It takes 12 recycled bottles to make one Kids Parkland backpack. That’s awesome.


Parkland is doing their part to keep water bottles out of the landfill. That’s why we have chosen Parkland for the #1 slot in our “12 Reasons to Shop at Yellow Turtle” campaign.



S’well’s mission is to rid the world of plastic water bottles. These stylish reusable bottles combine fashion with function and are making a big difference in helping to keep single-use plastic out of landfills and waterways. Did you know that by using a reusable bottle, you can save an average of 156 plastic bottles a year? Pack a S’well water bottle in your kiddos lunch box.



Stashers’ goal is to provide a reusable alternative to disposable plastic baggies and single use plastic containers. Twenty million plastic sandwich bags go to landfill every day in the U.S. Plastics leach hundreds of toxic chemicals into your food. Yuck. Stasher’s 100% pure platinum food grade silicone bags are the healthy alternative to plastic. They are made from 100% naturally healthy materials. Perfect for packing school lunches. These bags are amazing! Stock up on Stasher Bags to make a difference.
