Plastic Free July Pop-Up Stalls!

Here at Kelly Tarlton's we wanted to celebrate Plastic Free July by providing guests with the opportunity to grab themselves an eco-friendly (and practical!) souvenir. We partnered with 4 eco-friendly companies who were invited to set up a once-off pop-up stall right here in Turtle Bay! Throughout the month, some of our lucky guests were able to meet with the lovely ladies from Straw-the-line, Kaitiaki, Glass by Greer and I-Used-To-Be, and walk away with some eco-friendly goodies to help kick-start (or continue) their plastic free journey!
