Heard about the problems of overfishing but can’t see how you can help? Know you should only eat fish that comes from ‘sustainable sources’ but not sure what that means? Get yourself down to Selfridges as Project Ocean is launching from this Wednesday (11th May) till the 12th June.
Selfridges will be teaming up with a number of environmental organisations such as The Zoological Society of London (ZSL), the Marine Conservation Society and Greenpeace to address issues such as sustainability, overfishing and marine protection. They aim to challenge the public to imagine a world with “no more fish in the sea”.
Selfridges’ iconic window display will also be transformed into an aquarium, to promote World Ocean Day. Rumour has it that giant sea creatures will be created from biodegradable balloons as well as other stylish themes. Fashion designers will be creating a marine range with the slogan ‘no more fish in the sea’, top chefs will be at hand to give you great sustainable recipes. Workshops and film screenings of Hugh-Fearnley Whittington’s Fish Fight will be occuring. There will also be a weekly Dive Bar with different music sessions and poetry readings. So there will be something for all the family.
This is deffinatly something not to miss. Expect to be blown away.
