Every morning with the new tide, plastic pollution is purged onto the beach like a gift from the ocean. Usually a water bottle or balloon, sometimes a plastic bag or shotgun shell.

  During the peak of summer months is when things like beach toys, sunglasses and glow sticks start washing up. Most beach goers don’t realize that this kind of plastic pollution is harmful to sea turtles and marine life. 

Marine debris is a global issue that is affecting our sea turtles. Things like water bottle lids, released balloons float around in the ocean. This kind of plastic breaks down to smaller pieces and sea turtles that injest it will die.
