Costco's New Seafood Policy -- Thanks, Costco!

Last summer, we discussed Greenpeace's campaign urging Costco to stop selling unsustainable fish.  Today?  Victory!  

Costco is one of the largest seafood retailers in the country, so this is a really big deal.  They will no longer be selling 12 red list species which includes orange roughy and Atlantic halibut.  Additionally, they agreed to better their aquaculture practices and work on creating a more sustainable tuna industry.  Thank you, Costco!  

Now, Greenpeace is working on getting Walmart and Supervalu to adopt a sustainable seafood policy.  Read more and take action at Greenpeace.  100,000 messages went to Costco's CEO and look at the success that came from that!
