Yes on Prop 37 Giveaway: i love blue sea $100 gift certificate!

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.

i love blue sea and yes on prop 37

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.

vote "yes" on prop 37!

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.

    While I can’t vote on this, I hope the movement is successful and can spur change in other states.

      I agree, Hannah. I really think that if we get GMO food labeled in California that ultimately it will be a win for the entire country. California is the most populated state, and I can’t imagine manufacturers taking the extra cost to product two different labeling systems. So really, a win for California is a win for us all. :)

  2. Lisa

    I do not reside in California but fully support this. Let’s get this thing moving across our country and create a much healthier life for our families!

  3. Alison

    I so hope Prop 37 passes. It will be inspiration to get the ball rolling. The US is way behind the times….

  4. Tina

    I support prop 37 because I believe it should be illegal to sell unlabeled GMO fresh fruit and vegetables and products with GMO s in them. The more studies that are done the more obvious it is that they create health problems.

  5. Gina

    I wish I could vote YES for prop 37. As Hannah above mentioned I too hope it is successful to spur movement in other states. Unfortunately if that happens, I am willing to bet Utah will not move on it soon.

      The thing is, California makes up 10% of the nation’s population and most of these manufacturers are not going to go through the hassle of making two different labels. So in reality, a win in Califonia is a win for all of us!

  6. Rhonda

    We have every right to know what we are ingesting and feeding our family. I am fully support complete transparency in the food industry. This prop is the first step. I have urged everyone I know in CA to vote yes!

  7. Jessica

    I think this is a good start for the rest of the country. We ALL have a right to know what is in our food, so we can make the best decisions possible for our families.

  8. anneliese

    not a ca resident, but am fully in favor of prop 37! after hearing more about the real deal on gmo’s at this summer’s organic farming conference in ma i’m fully convinced we need labeling and much more caution with the use of this science.

  9. Molly

    I agree with what everyone said! Id like to know what’s in my food and avoid things that are harmful. If prop 37 gets passed in California then hopefully it’d spread to my state!

  10. Suzy D.

    I support it because we have a right to know what’s in our food and what we are buying and putting into our bodies!

      Hi Lisa,

      I’m definitely not an expert on GMO fish. There is a lot of genetic engineering happening with farmed fish to make them grow bigger faster. Like all GMOs, we have no idea what the long term consequences are. I personally don’t feel good about trying to ignore the natural orders of things. And there are plenty of studies linking GMOs to things like infertility, tumors, and liver disease. This is why I only buy wild caught fish.

      Here’s an article with a little more info: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1309316/Frankensalmon-ruled-safe-eat-Fast-growing-GM-fish-approved-scientists.html
