Seafood Watch = Sustainable Choice

Informed choice. It is what matters in pretty much every purchasing situation you’ll encounter. Where did this thing I want come from? How much harm might getting it to me cause, or did it help someone or many someones along the way? Is the place from which I am purchasing a company that I feel good about giving my dollars? Is the thing itself something I need? Do I need a new one of these or would a gently used one serve me just as well?
