It’s no secret that our oceans are in danger. There are simple ways that we can individually help to slow climate change and preserve our healthy oceans, but we each have to commit to this effort. Read on to learn a few simple things you can do daily to help save the ocean because what you do today does make a difference!
How to Help Save the Ocean
At home, try to avoid chemical pollutants so this runoff won’t flow into the ocean. When shopping or on-the-go, you can reduce waste (and save money!) by using reusable containers and bags. Next time you head to your car, consider if you could walk, bike, or take public transportation to your destination. This helps to reduce vehicle pollution and use less fossil fuel.
Lastly, choose sustainable seafood as it is not only better for the environment, but also for your body. By definition, sustainable fishing “means leaving enough fish in the ocean and protecting habitats and threatened species.” Think: leaving the earth a better place than when you arrived.
Why Should I Choose Sustainable Seafood?
Secret Island makes an effort to focus on sustainability in our every move, and you can too. We have been awarded with the BAP certification that signifies our products meet the rigorous standards developed by Best Aquaculture Practices, which is the only third-party aquaculture certification program to examine the entire production chain of seafood farming. This program breaks sustainability up into four quadrants on which they then focus: social, environmental, food safety, and animal health and welfare.
For you, this logo denotes that our fish is high-quality and ethically farmed. This means that these fish are farmed in a way that is not harmful to their ecosystem or the waters in which they live.
