Firstly, anyone who is starting sustainable swaps, must already be taking their own grocery bags to the store. I also have a set of small to medium lightweight mesh produce bags to use for all those single items instead of grabbing one of those flimsy plastic bags from a roll above the carrots. Secondly, I am very careful to always purchase wild-caught seafood rather than farm-raised. Farm-raised shrimp coming from Indonesia is NOT a sustainable source. Likewise, tilapia and Atlantic salmon.

Gammy, I didn't know about and like the idea of mesh bags from home to replace the flimsy plastic bags in the produce section.
Also, I am similarly careful about buying seafood, checking in every so often with the list from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
