Plastic bag ban

I missed out on World Turtle Day, but the city of Los Angeles gave turtles a small gift. The LA City Council voted 13 - 1 in favour of banning plastic bags on Turtle Day. Turtles are known to eat plastic bags, perhaps mistaking them for jellyfish, and this can lead to their death. A while ago I wrote about the general problem of plastic in the ocean, if you're interested in learning more that's a place to start.
