A sustainable Easter means better egg and seafood choices
Written on Thursday, 17 April 2014 12:30

For many, Good Friday approaching means a last minute shop for seafood, Easter eggs & hot cross buns.

Last week we looked at how you can help make a more sustainable choice by using the Zoos Victoria Guide to determine what brands do and don’t use Certified Sustainable Palm Oil, but it is equally important to consider what seafood you are purchasing for the traditional Good Friday celebrations.

Over 80% of global fish stocks are over-exploited, depleted, fully exploited or in recovery meaning we may be the last generation to catch food from the oceans. This means buying local and sustainably produced seafood this Easter is just as important as choosing palm oil free, or sustainably produced palm oil products.

Eco Review - Product of the Week

Thursday 17 April 2014

If you haven't realised I am very passionate about the issue of Palm Oil and how the unsustainable practices in Malayasia and Indonesia are killing Orangutans and ruining villagers lives, then I must assume you are new to my blog.

If you are equally as passionate about protecting this species from extinction then you must check out a great new documentary called Rise of the Eco-Warriors, directed by acclaimed award winning Australian director, Cathy Henkel.

Faced with the challenge of spending one hundred days in the jungles of Borneo, Rise of the Eco-Warriors tells the real life story of fifteen young people from nine countries who undertake the mission to explore and implement solutions to the rampant deforestation which is destroying local Dayak communities, driving endangered Orangutans and other wildlife to extinction and contributing to climate change.
