Trader Joe's Vows to Sell Sustainable Seafood
One of the reasons for Trader Joe's change of heart is the failing grade the chain got in Greenpeace's sustainable-seafood report, "Carting Away the Oceans." Thanks to this announcement, though, they'll likely pass this year's inspection. As part of the deal, Trader Joe's pledged to remove all "red-listed" species from their shelves. They'll also increase shoppers' ability to make informed decisions by changing their seafood labels to include detailed information about each species' origin, catch or production methods, and Latin names.
