Trader Joe's makes the cut in latest Greenpeace report

Greenpeace ranks 20 U.S.

Safeway, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's all earned a green rating in Greenpeace's 2013 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO) report.

The report has been evaluating and ranking supermarkets on their sustainable seafood policies since 2008.

This year even the world's largest retailer, Walmart, reportedly introduced both fish aggregating device (FAD)-free skipjack and pole-and-line albacore in more than 3,000 stores in the U.S.

Greenpeace ratings evaluate retailers on several factors from the sale of “red list” seafood to engagement with conservation initiatives. Each retailer is scored on a scale of 0-10.
