Join us in celebrating Arctic Sea Ice Day, July 12, by greening your grocery list. Why? Because your food choices have an impact on the sea ice that wild polar bears need for their survival.
Today I commit to:
Become a locavore! You'll reduce food miles (and you'll support local farmers).
Why organic? You'll reduce the emissions caused by chemical fertilizers.
Buy in bulk when you can and avoid foods with excess packaging.
Buy local, sustainably raised meat or poultry instead of products from CAFOs (concentrated animal feedlot operations).
Check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium's ocean-friendly seafood choices.
Examples include palm oil, coffee that isn’t shade-grown and South American beef.
Show how you’re doing your part to help polar bears! Share photos of your actions on Instagram or our Facebook wall with the hashtag #saveourseaice and we'll add them to our gallery.
And don't forget: make a pledge to help the bears in our Commit List above and share a photo of your actions in our gallery.
