Like Tuna? - Which Ones To Buy - Or Not To Buy ...
What secrets are hiding in your tin of tuna?
There's a lot more to tinned tuna than just the fish inside the can. It could also have caused the deaths of turtles, sharks, dolphins and others. But there are ways to catch tuna without endangering other, already vulnerable marine species.
So which ones are 'PC' to buy and which to avoid?
This article from Greenpeace charts the major UK brands and ranks them 1 to 8.
Make your choice. It's a small thing, but reduced sales (and profits) from the villains might make them reconsider their actions on this and other products. In the same way, we should be rewarding those stores and manufacterers selling responsibly fished and sustained products.
