Every year on June 8th people around the planet celebrate World Oceans Day. At Inland we celebrate the ocean every day – inviting seafood from the seven seas to join us for a party in our cooler! Without the bounty of the ocean we wouldn’t have a business, so we’re all about putting the focus on ocean health.
As the World Oceans Day website reminds us, the ocean is critical to our survival. The ocean is important because it:
- Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
- Helps feed us
- Regulates our climate
- Cleans the water we drink
- Offers a pharmacopoeia of medicines
- Provides limitless inspiration!
It can be hard to find a way to engage, which is why we’re excited to share this opportunity from our friends at Seafood Watch with you. They want you to highlight a GREEN or Best Choice seafood dish as a World Oceans Day special in your restaurant on June 8. If you make it official, you’ll get some cool stuff! There are some fun social media promotions happening as well – get involved!
Let us know if you need some help finding a menu option – we have plenty! From Wild Alaska halibut to farm raised rainbow trout or great shellfish options like mussels and clams.
