Recently, wholesale giant, Costco announced a new sustainable seafood policy aimed at protecting the oceans.

The response from the public has been amazing! Check out what people have been saying about this huge win for the oceans:

– Indeed awesome news!
– Thanks for all your hard work, Greenpeace!
– Beautiful. Hope this change is contagious.
– So frikkin cool! Well done you guys!
– Great job…please don’t stop now!!!!!!!!!

And, that’s not all. The media has been publishing stories about the announcement all around the world.

Congrats to all who helped make this possible. And stay involved because our work to improve the health of the oceans is far from over.
