Hello and Welcome to The Turquoise Tortuga! Many of you have asked about our name, The Turquoise Tortuga, and how it relates to candles! In the beginning, when the seed was planted to start a candle co, another business was also in the works. After discussion and thought, two businesses were formed…Blythe Light and The Turquoise Tortuga.
Rebranding to The Turquoise Tortuga
After many months we decided to settle on one name and rebranded to The Turquoise Tortuga! We are absolutely in love with this name, now let me tell you why.
My Love for The Ocean
At a very young age I fell in love with the ocean. This love led me to study Marine Biology in college with a focus on Ocean Conservation. Opportunities to study abroad in Australia and internships on the North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and California coasts led me to have a passion for marine mammal rehabilitation.
Eco-Friendly Candles + Ocean Conservation
When setting goals for our company, we wanted to provide an eco-friendly candle that evoked memories, calm, and happiness into our lives. We also wanted a way to bring hope to our world by supporting a cause. Marine mammal rehabilitation and ocean conservation are just that cause. Our goal is to provide a portion of our candle-making proceeds to support marine mammal centers and rehab facilities that provide the needed care for our injured animals in addition to organizations that seek to protect our oceans.
You Can Make a Difference
We believe that it takes everyone to make a difference. We hope that you will help support our oceans.
Thank you for believing in us! We look forward to bringing you our next post and supplying all your candle needs. Keep Shining your Light!
