This is a copy of my letter to the company today.
As a consumer, I care about what’s at my Costco. Our oceans deserve better. Costco needs to be a leader in ocean conservation, not a contributor to ocean destruction. I want Costco to have a sustainable seafood policy and stop selling red list seafood, starting immediately with orange roughy and Chilean sea bass.
Your customers want to know the truth. Stop hiding and let your customers make informed decisions about their purchases. I want Costco to have sustainable seafood and transparent labeling for all of us to see.
Costco must also begin to stand up for the oceans and support positive environmental change.
In almost every Costco store you’ll find freezers and coolers full of unsustainable fish. In fact, Greenpeace surveys found that Costco continues to sell fifteen of the twenty-two red list seafood items.
This is illegal! I will publicize the heck out of this until you decide to do the right thing. This really pisses me off.
In such a competitive world I would think you would realize how this publicity will effect your business.
