New Products from FELT SO GOOD!!

Felt so good was launched to life by Adele Zara Collinson in 2009. It all stemmed from her love for colour and craft after studying Design Crafts at University and living in Asia for a while. She is able to design all of these stunning products here in the UK and then has a very hands on approach with the skilled workers in Asia where these are produced using traditional crafts. She follows a strong passion to support and promote an ethical practice and personally travels to Asia at least 3 times a year to oversee that these values are not only upheld but strengthened. �The artistry skills of the ladies whom make these gorgeous products are fantastic and the importance of this community based cottage industry to maintain and develop responsible working conditions, be given fair wages and a job in which they are happy is at the heart of felt so good's ethos. The materials that we use are natural and biodegradable helping our planet in the long term for our future little ones".

Say NO! to Plastic - Buy a Reusable Bag and Save a Turtle!

Plastic bags are becoming a major marine problem for the same reason that they are a commercial success - they don't break down. Every year, 17� billion plastic bags are given away by supermarkets, equivalent to over 290 bags for every person in the UK. We produce and use 20 times more plastic today than we did 50 years ago.

Sadly, mistaking polythene bags for jellyfish has caused the deaths of many Leatherback Turtles. A discarded bag fills with water and floats, semi-submerged on the water's surface. To a turtle this looks just like a jellyfish and is swallowed with terrible consequences, usually resulting in death for the turtle as the bag either twists in its gut or blocks digestion.

The hazards of the plastic bag do not stop with the turtles. Plastics never fully degrade; plastic bags eventually turn into plastic 'dust' which can still be ingested by filter feeding marine animals such as jellyfish. Plastic is highly toxic, and toxins are passed up the food chain to the fish and ultimately human consumers.

Until now, no studies were conducted on filter-feeding organisms such as jellies, whose feeding mechanisms do not permit them to distinguish between tiny fragments of plastic debris and plankton. It is now known that plastic fragments heavily impact these creatures. When broken into smaller pieces, these tiny plastic fragments accumulate non-water soluble toxicants such as PCB's, and pesticides such as DDT. Plastic acts as a sponge for such chemicals and other persistent organic pollutants, concentrating such poisons up to a million times higher than their concentration in the water. These toxic particles move up the food chain from the small invertebrates to  the fish and then return to us on our plate!
