Sea Turtles Eat Plastic

I've found a lot of good articles this week which Pokey wants me to get posted, but haven't had much time.  However, we were able to agree that this article, "One Sea Turtle's Worth of Plastic" should be mentioned first.  You have probably already heard how much plastic ends up in the ocean each year, but did you know that sea turtles end up eating it on accident?Sometimes it gets intertwined with the plankton and algae that makes up their normal diet.  Sometimes it gets mistaken for actual food on the ocean floor.  Either way, it is pretty crazy motivation for me to use less plastic when I see pictures like this.  I hope it is for you too!
