http://fivepointfive.org On the west coast of Nicaragua is a very special community project that is cleaning up the beaches. Turtles often swallow plastic bags mistaking them for food and suffocate and die. These women are taking all the plastic bags and sewing them into fantastic beach bags and accessories that they can then sell.

This is so great as not only does it clean up the oceans, it spares turtles and it creates an income for the women involved.

We came across the project when we met Jackson the owner of Magnific Rock Surf Hotel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKXH7v...
