Green Habits to Help Animals: Totes for Turtles
Your YouTube addiction aside, you may not realize how your daily habits affect wild animals. This week's tips are about how to make minor changes to your routine to help adorable (and not-so-adorable) critters around the globe.
Tip #3: Fight plastic pollution.
Sea turtles are among the many animals that suffer when plastic ends up in the ocean.

Some towns have banned plastic bags; until yours does, don't forget to carry your own tote when shopping. If you live near a shore, consider planning a beach cleanup.
