Plastics and Marine Life

The Sea Turtle with a Straw in its Nostril – No To Single Use Plastics

Here is a very powerful video of a sea turtle who had a straw lodged in his nose. There are millions of pieces of single-use plastics in the ocean and they pose a huge threat to marine life. Every year, thousands of marine animals get caught in and ingest plastic material, which causes most of them to die. Just to warn you, this video is a little bit distressing as the turtle is clearly in pain, but I encourage you to watch it to see the damage single-use plastics can do.
