Now I must share with you that this recipe is one that is absolutely perfect for celebrating Earth Day this year!
For this recipe I chose the Wild Selections® Solid White Albacore Tuna, not just for its quality and great taste, but because of what they do for our Earth.
Did you know that Wild Selections® is the only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood? If you notice on the tuna can, there is a blue MSC eco-label. This tells you that the fish in the can comes from well managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks. There is no doubt that where the fish is caught is much more critical than how it was caught (limited impact if the fish stock is overfished).
Wild Selections® also gives back to the oceans by donating 13 cents from every can sold. That means you are helping give back to your oceans every time you make a purchase.
By 2018 Wild Selections® will have donated $1 million to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects. They are the only brand to “pay it forward” and act on its belief to take care of the oceans for the future, not just fishing sustainability in the present.
Aside from what an impact Wild Selections® is making on this earth, I also purchase their tuna because it contains simple all-natural ingredients and it is Non-GMO Project Verified. Celebrating Earth Day 2017 just got easier this year thanks to Wild Selections®. See how creative you can get with your tuna recipes while helping give back to the Earth not just during this month, but all year! See more health tips from The Fit Bay!
