In 2006 the UN Environment Programme estimated that there were 18,000 pieces of plastic floating in every square kilometre of sea. Fish are not the only ones to suffer from our pollution; turtles often mistake plastic for the jellyfish that they feed on and suffocate on the bags. To raise funds to save them, and help clear the seas, spend £4.95 on a shopping bag (cleverly tucked into a tiny, easy-to-carry pouch) at Turtle Bags.
