UNITED STATES: Greenpeace releases 2013 sustainable supermarket list

UNITED STATES: Greenpeace releases 2013 sustainable supermarket list | free range work travel live | Scoop.it

Greenpeace has released its 2013 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO) report, which ranks American supermarkets on their sustainable seafood policies.

 

In previous years only Safeway and Whole Foods have earned the ‘green rating’, but this year Trader Joe’s joins them on the green list.

 

Greenpeace has also praised Walmart for introducing both fish aggregating device (FAD)-free skipjack and pole-and-line albacore in more than 3,000 stores across the country.

 

The CATO report gives each supermarket a score of 0-10, based on a variety of factors, including the sale of ‘red list’ seafood, engagement with conservation initiatives, transparency of supply, and the establishment of cohesive internal policies.

 

Wegmans, SUPERVALU and Trader Joe’s have also taken strong stands to protect the delicate Zhemchug and Pribilof Canyons of the Bering Sea, home to the billion dollar pollock industry. The report also showcases other key issues facing the seafood industry, such as a need for more transparency at point-of-sale and a growing groundswell of opposition to genetically modified salmon, a product that numerous major retailers have already pledged not to sell.

 

“It’s hard to believe that brands like Kroger, Publix & BI-LO are continuing to sell tuna that’s sourced using destructive fishing methods, and sell red list species that are struggling for survival,” said Casson Trenor, Greenpeace Senior Markets Campaigner. “This seems so far out of step with consumer preferences, which have encouraged most grocery retailers to offer more sustainable seafood options.”

Glamping instead of camping, for those who want luxury in the great outdoors

Glamping instead of camping, for those who want luxury in the great outdoors | free range work travel live | Scoop.it
As far as I'm concerned, staying in a hotel with no room service is as close to camping as I care to get. My version of a snipe hunt is searching for a Coach bag at Marshalls.

Glamping (i.e. compromised camping); for when your partner doesn't "rough it". What do you think?
