Ignoring where things come from is a long proud tradition in this country, and we’d like to keep it that way. Especially with regards to the ocean…

The Surfrider Foundation disagrees, and is smuggling packages of beach debris into farmer’s markets to make a point about oceanic pollution. We imagine the usual greenmarket crowd is pretty open to it, but we can’t help but wonder if they’re being a bit too aggressive. It’s one thing to see something this gross on a website, but accidentally tossing it into your totebag could be genuinely off-putting…and not necessarily in a good way.

Also, we’re never eating seafood again.
