Earth Island Institute monitors tuna companies around the world to ensure the tuna is caught by methods that do not harm dolphins and protect the marine ecosystem. Their standards prevent harm to dolphins and are adhered to by more than 90% of the world’s tuna companies. In order for tuna to be considered “Dolphin Safe”, it must meet the following standards: 1. No intentional chasing, netting or encirclement of dolphins during an entire tuna fishing trip; 2. No use of drift gill nets to catch tuna; German Whale & Dolphin Foundation, GRD logo 3. No accidental killing or serious injury to any dolphins during net sets; 4. No mixing of dolphin-safe and dolphin-deadly tuna in individual boat wells (for accidental kill of dolphins), or in processing or storage facilities; and 5. Each trip in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) by vessels 400 gross tons and above must have an independent observer on board attesting to the compliance with points (1) through (4) above.

***ALERT: Label Under Boycott***What the SFI claims: "The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) label is a sign you are buying wood and paper products from well-managed forests, backed by a rigorous, third-party certification audit."What Stop SFI Greenwash claims: "The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) label is a huge industry scam that should be avoided at all costs. The SFI puts its greenwash label on wood and paper products connected with chopping down the oldest trees we have left, cutting down patches of forest the size of 90 football fields, the aerial spraying of toxic chemicals on communities, polluting waterways, spurring landslides, and threatening rare wildlife. This greenwashed eco label is bought and paid for by the very industry that it is supposed to be regulating. SFI: pure greenwashing."Website: http://forestethics.org/sustainable-forestry-initiative
