More and more people within and outside of thetuna industryare finally realizing that their business depends on sustaining fish populations. To truly transform an industry riddled with ocean destruction and labor abuse,Thai Unionand its global brands likeChicken of the Seamust stand up and fight for real reform in the industry.
They must stop using poorly regulated and destructive fishing methods that needlessly kill vulnerable marine wildlife. No one wants to buy tuna with a side of sea turtle or shark.

Joint UNHCR and EU scheme offers Syrian refugees and other children a safe space to learn and play.
The ‘Fun Bus’ initiative is jointly funded by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and the European Union, and implemented by the Makhzoumi Foundation, a Lebanese NGO. It provides support and recreation to street children in Lebanon, thereby reducing the amount of time they spend working outside.
That environment of the unknown — and protecting it — was the inspiration behind the band Animal Collective’s latest album and video, Tangerine Reef. Created to coincide with the International Year of the Reef, the musicians tell how art can help inspire us to reckon with climate change before its too late.
A must see video, ck. it out.
The video for Tangerine Reef shows corals moving 10 times their natural speed, making them seem otherworldly but humanlike. Slimy appendages wriggle and feed neon, tessellating mouths. At times, they seem to smile. At other times, the images drift into patterns and abstraction.
There is still a lot we don’t know about corals: Scientists weren’t sure how they reproduced until 1981 and researchers are still learning the details about how they live, grow and respond to environmental stresses.
It’s one thing to talk about the plastics pollution crisis, but witnessing it first-hand, standing on it, smelling it, and talking to the communities that have to live next to it, is indescribable.
While corporations talk, heroes like Froilan Grate and Merci Ferrer are working every day to tackle the plastic pollution crisis with real solutions in the Philippines. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside them as partners in the#BreakFreeFromPlasticmovement.
