Tell Costco that it's time put an end to wholesale ocean destruction.
Costco is selling more than just wine and cheese. In its freezers you’ll find tons of endangered fish. Greenpeace surveys found that Costco continues to sell fifteen of the twenty-two red list seafood items.
Costco is destroying our oceans through its horrible seafood purchasing practices and leaving customers in the dark by hiding the truth.
We can change the way that Costco does business by spreading the word and making sure that people everywhere know the truth about their seafood.
The power is in our hands. Costco can and must do better!
Sign the petition and download the toolkit today to help us spread the word in your community!
Watch the trailer to a powerful new documentary about hydro-fracking for gas, called GASLAND. Hydro-fracking, despite polluting the groundwater in many documented cases across the US, isn't currently regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act. This dirty, dangerous form of drilling is also expanding rapidly across the US.
Check it out on the Care2 news network, note it, and share it! (You can find the trailer to the film here too...)
Hydro-fracking operations may have contaminated water in many states. GASLAND documents the stories of many residents near drilling sites whose water has been polluted... some of them can even set their tap water on fire.
As you may know, President Obama's administration is currently supporting a proposal to the International Whaling Commission that would legalize commercial whaling for the first time since 1986. We can't let this happen and we need your help!
On June 3rd, we'll deliver thousands of your photos and messages to the President and other White House officials. You can take part and have your photo among those delivered by submitting a photo to Save the Whales!
We're looking for fun, creative, and powerful photos with a human touch to them. And the more people in your photos, the stronger the message to the President will be that lots of us care about the future of the whales! Please submit your photos by Weds, May 26th.
You don't have to enter the contest to submit a photo -- we want everyone who cares about the future of the whales to take part in this powerful action to show the President our opposition to commercial whaling.
What a great day to be a fish! The future of our oceans became a little bit brighter as Trader Joe’s agreed to "green-up their stores" by implementing sustainable seafood policies.
Greenpeace applauds the supermarket chain for finally seeing the light and working towards sustainable seafood policies that will help save the oceans and put an end to destructive fishing practices.
Prior to this announcement, Trader Joe's came in 17th out of the 20 stores evaluated in Greenpeace’s analysis of seafood sustainability policies at major supermarket chains. That was the worst ranking attained by any national chain.
Trader Joe's felt the heat from Greenpeace’s mock website (www.traitorjoe.com), relentless phone calls from supporters, thoughtful karaoke songs from shoppers and in-store demonstrations and questions to store managers from activists across the country.
Trader Joe’s has removed many unsustainable products from its shelves, including the highly objectionable orange roughy that it sold for several years.
Specifically, Trader Joe’s has announced that they will:
Offer only sustainable seafood in their stores by December 31, 2012.
Work with third-party, science-based organizations to establish definitions and parameters for addressing customer concerns about overfishing, destructive catch or production methods, and the importance of marine reserves.
Remove “red-listed” seafood from their shelves. Trader Joe’s stopped selling Chilean Sea Bass in 2005, Orange Roughy in July of 2009, and Red Snapper in March of 2010.
Provide accurate information on all seafood labels, including species’ Latin names, origin and catch or production method.
Use their buying power to leverage change in the seafood industry.
Greenpeace is hopeful that Trader Joe’s will continue implementing a comprehensive sustainable seafood purchasing policy to ensure they have a road map for staying green long into the future.
We’ve been hearing a lot out of Washington over the last few months about what’s &ldquoolitically possible” when it comes to stopping global warming. But the truth is that it’s not up to corporate lobbyists from the oil and coal industries to decide what’s possible. It’s up to you and me.
That’s why I hope you’ll join me and help spread the word about October 24th.
Time is running out. And we’re the ones who get to decide what’s politically possible. It’s our future.
The fate of the whales hangs in the balance. Greenpeace's fastest ship, the Esperanza, has been chasing the Japanese whaling ship for 5 days now, over hundreds of miles through fog and increasingly rough seas. The high speed chase has driven the factory ship Nisshin Maru out of the hunting grounds where they hoped to kill 1000 whales, including 50 endangered fin whales. All whaling has stopped -- for now.
But we need your help to keep our ship on the seas. Facebook has launched a Giving Challenge, and the cause with the greatest number of donors each day wins $1000. The cause with the most donors by February 1st wins a grand prize of $50,000! This would go a long way to fund the expedition, and to keep our ship between the whales and the grenade-tipped harpoons of the whalers.
URGENT! TAKE ACTION TODAY: Join the "Stop the Whale Hunt!" Facebook Cause and donate $10.
Here's how: 1) Create an account on Facebook if you don't have one yet.
3) Donate $10. This is the minimum donation to qualify for the competition to win $50,000. If you'd like to give more, please consider spacing it out over the course of a few days, as there are prizes for causes with the most donors each day.
If the Nisshin Maru does try to start whaling again, we're ready to do what we do best. We'll use high-powered water pumps from the back of our boats to create a curtain of water and shield the whales from the harpooners' view. We will do nothing to harm or endanger the Japanese vessels or crew. We will, however, use all peaceful means at our disposal to stop the killing of any more whales.
We’re doing our part to protect the whales here in the Southern Ocean. You can too. You don’t have to place yourself in harm’s way to protect whales you can take action on Facebook today! With the Facebook Giving Challenge, NOW is the best time to help save whales.
