Description

Recycled crushed, washed and dried whelk shells. This bag contains a finer crush of shells than our other bags, ideal for top dressing miniature plants and pots.

We've taken our time to crush and riddle these shells resulting in smaller pieces which will sit more neatly and uniformly as a top dressing - great for succulents.

The artwork on the front of the bag is by watercolour artist Tanya Glama.
We asked Tanya to share a bit about herself;

"I really love travel, and in every new city I visit botanical gardens. It inspires me. On one these trips I discovered succulents. I fell so in love with succulents that I started to collect them, and then I began to paint them. The illustration on the Super Crush bag shows a succulent that I painted from my own collection."

Caryl Andrews, Founder of Shell on Earth

Shell on Earth

New Quay, Wales

Hi, I'm Caryl, co-founder of Shell on Earth. I launched this company along with my husband, Jordan, in 2019. Our desire was to recycle the shells generated at our family's seafood processing business, rather than sending them to landfill.

We’ve been processing shellfish here on the West coast of Wales for over 40 years. We currently specialise in processing whelks.

The whelks are caught locally in traditional pots, a low impact method of fishing which means minimal damage to the sea floor and marine habitats. We’re passionately committed to sustainability and are always looking for new ways to do better.

It's estimated that 5,000 tonnes of waste shells are generated in the UK fishing industry every year. We’re proud to not only reduce our waste output from the factory, but also to help support a circular economy by utilising 100% of the whelks we process.
