No Plastic VIII: Single use plastic

In this video you can watch how marine researchers pull out a plastic straw from the nose of a young sea turtle. Probably the turtle had eaten the straw, and it got stuck in his nose when he tried to throw it up.
It is estimated that every single day over 500,000 plastic straws ends up in the oceans. And one plastic straw, bag, or bottle could mean the difference between life or death for marine animals.
