Sign the Petition to

Bumble Bee, Chicken of the Sea, and Starkist

As a concerned consumer and ocean lover, I'm appalled by your brand's lack of action to provide sustainable tuna in the US.

Greenpeace's ranking has revealed that your company refuses to provide information about your sourcing. The sustainability section of your website does not explain how and when your company will ensure only ocean safe and ethical tuna will be available.

Our oceans are in deep trouble. Many species of sharks, rays and turtles are already threatened with extinction, and tuna stocks continue to suffer from overfishing. Your brand is making matters worse by refusing to source from more sustainable fishing methods.

Unsafe working conditions and other human rights concerns are common in the fishing industry. As a consumer, it is unclear if your company can guarantee your tuna does not come from questionable sources.

As one of the biggest canned tuna brands in the country, you can help turn things around. Please commit to transition to best practice fishing methods that reduce your impact on our oceans and ensure your tuna is sourced in a fair and socially responsible way. Be the first big brand to be part of the solution, instead of greenwashing your dirty tuna.

Signed,

Greenpeace

Every year, major tuna companies like Bumble Bee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea, are responsible for killing tens of thousands of sharks, rays, sea turtles, seabirds, and other marine life as a result of the destructive fishing methods they use. 

And these major brands are refusing to provide to consumers any information about their supply chain — even withholding basic labeling information like what species is actually in the can.

It's unacceptable.  But it doesn't have to be this way. As caring consumers like YOU speak up — more and more retailers are offering sustainable and responsibly caught tuna options that do not involve these destructive practices.

Please join the thousands caring consumers who care about health of our oceans and send a message to Bumblebee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea: stop destroying our oceans!
