An environmental organization is now advocating for the latest addition to Meat-Free Mondays and weekday vegetarians: Fish-Free Friday. The campaign is headed by Plastiki, a group that aims to spread awareness about ocean ecology and over-fishing, and to develop sustainable solutions to plastic and ocean use. Each week, the organization highlights a fish of the week and uses artwork to illustrate facts about the fish, including its origin, how it is caught, and why it is important to avoid it. The campaign hopes to shed light to the dangers of overfishing and fragility of the ocean ecosystems.
