Being land locked in Utah (the most exotic place in the world), it’s really hard to find good seafood. Like really hard. And it’s even harder to find good seafood from reliable, sustainable, and otherwise “eco and health-friendly” people. There’s a reason why, growing up, I didn’t eat a lot of fish.
Enter: i love blue sea.
My family eats seafood regularly now. Fish, roe, and oysters are some of the healthiest things you can eat. And when you find a company who believe in quality food and sustainable practices, you know you have something special. Besides, this food is amazing.
i love blue sea believes that businesses based on the ocean should first do no harm to it.
These people developed relationships with oyster farmers, crabbers, and fishermen and women who run their own boats and are braving the waterways to bring you the freshest, most responsibly sourced seafood available.
In their own words:
You will know when your seafood was caught, where it comes from, and if you’re so curious, you can find out the name of the ship and how the harvest is going. When the ships come to shore, you’ll receive seafood straight from the boat.
This means better quality and lower prices for you, and a higher return for them. So there is no middleman between you and your omega 3’s and no far-flung, industrial-sized fish farms. We only buy from sustainable aquaculture and boats we know are causing no harm to our rivers, lakes and oceans. So enjoy – it’s all good. For you and our planet.
Yes on Prop 37 Giveaway
“Harvested with care. Assembled with love. Great for you and your oceans.” That pretty much sums i love blue sea’s philosophy. They believe in real food, sustainability, and doing the right thing. That’s why they are helping spread the word about Prop 37.
Right now, our food is under attack in this country. Our only hope for getting genetically modified (GMO) foods labeled is happening RIGHT NOW in California. Next month, California voters are getting the chance to vote to label GMOs. The initiative is called Proposition 37.
Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the opposition (Monsanto, Dupont, etc.) have raised over $20 million to try to sway Californians to vote no on Prop 37. We need to raise money to tell the truth about the dangers of GMOs — on TV commercials, billboards, etc. — and get Californians out on November 6th to VOTE YES on PROP 37.
