Happy World Turtle Day!

Happy #WorldTurtleDay!

As I mentioned in my recent endangered species post, the Hawksbill Turtle is on the critically endangered list, and turtles everywhere are threatened by plastic and other unwanted debris in the ocean every day.  A few ways you can help show your love for these beautiful creatures is by using less plastic, recycling what you do use, and by bringing your reusable bags to the market.

Here are some different turtles from around the world.
