Seriously?! A fishery that catches endangered sharks gets an ecolabel? Something's fishy!

Letter Sent. Thank you for keeping us informed! This sort of green-washing and false labeling is one of my biggest pet peeves. I work in print and design and it’s a constant uphill battle of wading through the eco labels to discern the really sustainable and the ‘psuedo’ sustainable. It’s so sad that corporations jump on these labels as a way to make more money. The repercussions are even worse: I’ve heard people say that they don’t believing ANY labels. They can’t wrap their head around the lies and the truths- and nor should they have to. Is there some sort of campaign out there that is really trying to standardize these? Thanks again.
