 “Young people - they care. They know that this is the world that they're going to grow up in, that they're going to spend the rest of their lives in. But, I think it's more idealistic than that. They actually believe that humanity, human species, has no right to destroy and despoil regardless.”

Sir David Attenborough


The Mallorca SUP Company are official ambassadors for Turtle Clips. This young start-up company has ben created by husband and wife team, Christian and Ana Cox, who have a passionate love of the worlds oceans, and in particular - sea turtles. Here's what they have to say:

SEA THE DIFFERENCE

Our mission is simple, yet life changing

Let’s enjoy the ocean experience, but do no harm to those that live there. This is their home. We are guests.

To that end, we manufacture cool flip flops that kids love, but are harder to lose and easier to recycle than conventional models. We use as much recyclable material as technology allows and we pledge 10% of profits to turtle conservation. Together, we can look cool and be even cooler.

Keep flip flops from dropping off and harming our neighbours. And we’ll sea the difference.


Meet The Turtle Clips Family

2010 Chris and Ana we were expecting their first child and decided to take a break from City jobs and go on an adventure.

They took a year out, driving across France and Switzerland to an extended stay in Barcelona from where they took the boat to Mallorca. Mallorca is the biggest of the Balearic islands and with its natural beauty, laid-back lifestyle and temperate climate, they accepted that this island would form a big part of the rest of their lives. 

Over the ten years since that first visit they have grown to a family of five and still spend every summer in Mallorca seeing Mallorquin friends as well as those who visit them there from the UK.

Three major things have come from their Mallorquin journey.

Firstly, we are a family of flip flop wearers! 

BUT, they fall off, they get lost, the children can’t run in them and they can easily trip our toddler, grazing knees, which is the last thing we want on our way out for the evening. So, when our first born was still under five we started to develop what is now the Turtle Clip.  

Secondly, a love of turtles and the dangers they face from ocean waste which includes lost flip flops, fishing nets and boats.

With this in mind, we decided to tie in the practicality of our flip flop strap with our love of turtles, Mallorca and the Mediterranean by supporting the team at Palma Aquarium Foundation and Save The Med who do an incredible job of rehabilitating injured and sick turtles across the Mediterranean.

Thirdly, in Mallorca we drink freshly squeezed orange juice every day.

The island smells of oranges. That is why we have made our flip flops with an orange fragrance, transporting us to the sunshine that we love there on a wet and windy UK day.

THE TURTLE CLIPS PLEDGE

Turtle Clips Ltd will give 10% from its annual profit to ocean conservation charities. These include:


Palma Aquarium Foundation

Based in Mallorca in the Balearic Islands, the foundation is headed by Debora Morrison, Palma Aquarium’s Director of Conservation. 

The Foundation states that “The oceans play a key ecological role in the functioning of planet Earth, and a very important part of the ocean is our Mediterranean Sea. It is our responsibility to raise awareness of its extraordinary biodiversity and to work for its conservation.”

Debora and her team work alongside Save The Med whose mission is “To enable the Mediterranean Sea to recover its rich biodiversity and to thrive in harmony with prospering, environmentally conscious and proactive local populations.”

Through partnering with the team in Palma we hope to help them achieve their goals. As well as the profit pledge we are developing an educational activity pack for children based on our Tiago the turtle and friends and will be delivering talks in schools to help spread the word.
