do your part for the tuna fishies!

There are many varieties of fish that are seriously being over fished, and all of the immoral practices that go along with it. Canned tuna is one of the most popular sources of fish in our stores and pantrys. Greenpeace Canada just posted a sustainability ranking of brands of canned tuna in Canada, describing why they get positive or negative ratings. I must say, it looks pretty bleak. The top rated company is Raincoast Trading, located in B.C. who are clearly doing a fantastic job. Buy Raincoast!

Check to see how your brands of tuna rate at greenpeace canned tuna guide.

Instead of just reading this, and being disgusted at how they are depleting the oceans, why don't we do something about it. Let them know we want change! I'm making it easy for you, giving you something to cut and paste. Also, please boycott, like you're going to say you are. Clearly all they are interested in is money, so let's withhold it from them.

Oh come on now, I know you're just going to pinterest, anyway.
