Eco-fish info by text message

I agree with Katy's blog that sustainable seafood may well be the next big thing in conscious eating. Now technology can help you make good buying choices. When you're at the grocery store, use your cell phone to text 30644 with the message FISH, plus the name of whatever you're looking at in the fish case (for example, FISH TILAPIA). You'll immediately get a text back from the Blue Ocean Institute, a nonprofit eco-marine organization, with the latest info on environmental concerns, including overfishing or high levels of toxins for that species. And if your pick has too much negative info, they'll suggest a better choice. I can't wait to try this on my next shopping trip!
