You go to the supermarket and pick out a can of tuna. Any brand. What difference could it make? Well, a lot actually. Some companies catch tuna in ways that may harm dolphins. If you refuse to buy tuna from a company that uses fishing practices harmful to dolphins, you send a message that you’re interested in protecting the environment. If enough people send that message, they can effect change. And in the case of tuna, people did. On April 12,1990, H.J. Heinz, the world’s largest producer of canned tuna, agreed not to purchase any tuna caught by methods that harm dolphin.
