TED Tuesday: How we wrecked the ocean

Part of greening your family is understanding how powerful your dollar is - what kind of vote and message it gives companies selling you products and services.  One of the ways we are continually damaging nature is overfishing and inflicting damage on the oceans.  The oceans are a key to life on earth and are fragile and need to be protected.

This is an interesting talk about how we have wrecked the oceans.

This is a great video showing how we are all linked to the biosphere and the effects that occur in the oceans.

What can you do? When you are choosing your seafood in the grocery store, choose a fish or seafood species which is not currently overfished as a start. Here's a great link that lists many different sustainable seafood guides:
