New study finds that 100 PERCENT of sea turtles have plastics in their bellies

The next time you come across a sea turtle in the wild, remember that there are pieces of plastic trash inside the animal’s belly. And if that is not stomach-churning enough for you, imagine the damage caused by jagged pieces of toxic pollutant tumbling inside your belly.

Researchers in the United Kingdom raised this issue after checking more than 100 turtles in three different oceans and seas. Given the results of their study, they warned that turtles and other forms of marine life are paying the price for the unfulfilled promises made by plastic manufacturers and governments when it came to cutting back on plastic pollution.
