ysmad Green Tip:
Eat less shrimp
For this one, please see our statistics page: besides a horrible amount of by-catch ("the shrimp trawl fishery generates more by-catch than any known world fishery and presents an average shrimp by-catch ratio of between 1:3 and 1:15 in the tropics"), "(...) shrimp aquaculture is responsible for 38% of total mangrove loss and (...) shrimp culture is, by a considerable margin, the greatest single cause of mangrove loss." according to an article "From Wetlands to Wastelands: Impacts of Shrimp Farming" .
Especially if it's battered with a truckload of breadcrumbs and drowned in tomato sauce anyway, there is no need to kill animals and a whole ecosystem along with it; imho.
