On-trend with growing environmental concerns worldwide, more environmentally conscious South Africans are choosing ‘green’ not ‘red’ when it comes to festive season dishes this year.
That’s because choosing ‘green’ is the easy, healthy, environmentally friendlier and delicious way to ensure your dining choices – and your consumer spend – contribute to a better world, whether around the dinner table or at your favourite restaurant.
Choosing sustainable seafood is easy with WWF-SASSI’s easy-to-use ‘traffic light’ seafood guide.
– Green list: The most sustainable seafood choices – enjoy often with a clear conscience.
– Orange list: Think twice – only choose seafood on this list on very rare occasions.
– Red list: Avoided entirely – this seafood is unsustainable or illegal to sell.

Not only are sustainable ‘green’ seafood choices from healthier fish populations, these are also lighter, better-for-you options than the traditional festive season focus on red meat choices.
Compared to greenhouse gas and water intensive red meat choices, ‘green’ seafood is also the more environmentally-conscious culinary choice, allowing eco-conscious consumers to drive change, by simply using the WWF SASSI APP to choose ‘green’ sustainable seafood.
This will help ensure your children, and their children, can also enjoy your favourite seafood for many festive seasons to come.
