Consider Lent Sustainable Seafood Choices While Fasting
If you’re angling towards fish from now until Easter then go green and choose lent sustainable seafood.
Lent has now begun. For Catholics and many Protestants, it marks the beginning of a 40-day observance of ancient traditions such as fasting and eating fish instead of meat. It’s a period of spiritual reflection and self-restraint and a great time for environmental stewardship. Go further for Lent and Easter and protect our marine environments by choosing sustainable seafood. Earth Day closely follows Easter so it makes for a perfect time to adopt or continue an environmental stewardship mindset.
We must choose fish that is ethically caught and sustainably sourced otherwise we will pass on a depleted legacy to our next generation.
