We are proud to announce a collaboration with ocean conservation charity Project Zero to inspire the restaurant, bar and café community of Carnaby to take action to protect the ocean.
The Blue Turtle is a mark of commitment which lets people know that Carnaby eateries have met criteria that helps to safeguard our planet’s life support system, the ocean.
The mark has been adopted by restaurants, bars and café’s that are working towards being ocean-friendly and are committed to continuing to improve their practices.
We have made this pledge to eliminate avoidable single-use plastics, reduce waste and source only sustainable seafood.
There are now 29 places around Carnaby Street that have been awarded with their Blue Turtle mark signifying their commitment towards being ocean-friendly and improving their practices.
The initiative is in collaboration with Project Zero and advised by an expert committee including ZSL, OneLess, Leon, Veolia, A Plastic Planet and Blue Marine Foundation.
The Blue Turtle mark of commitment gives customers a way to make informed choices. Together with Project Zero, we aim to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic and encourage our businesses to adopt sustainable practices to put the brakes on the global climate crisis.
The ocean is Earth’s life support system, taking up 70% of our planet’s surface and giving us every drop of water we drink, and every second breath we take. Today, the ocean is under attack from climate change, overfishing and plastic pollution. It’s time to show it some love. The Blue Turtle is a step towards creating a sustainable future for our planet.
