Urge Your Grocery Store to Protect Seals : The Humane Society of the United States

Blood on the Ice

Canada's cruel seal slaughter has begun, although mother seals can barely find ice to give birth on and the bottom is dropping out of the world market for seal fur. Thousands of restaurants refuse to serve Canadian seafood until the slaughter stops, and this boycott is having an impact.
Let's show Canada that the end to the seal slaughter is as inevitable as melting ice. 
Join the 2011 boycott to save seals! It’s the first step you can take to help end the slaughter forever.

What are your next steps?

STEP 2: Get the word out. Show Canada’s commercial fishing industry that we will not back down.

Transcript from NBCs TODAY Show: Shop til you drop! Top sites for saving:
This morning on "Today's Consumer," the best shopping websites. We’re only three weeks away from Cyber Monday, so it's a good time to get an idea of where you can get some great deals. The current issue of ShopSmart; magazine lists its top picks and Lisa Lee Friedman is the Editor-in-Chief. Good morning. I’m just addicted to shopping online but it's great when you can find great deals and great sites. How did you come up with your list?
Well, this year's list, we looked at all of these different websites to find out what are some of the hottest trends in online shopping, so these sites really represent some of those hot trends. In addition, we wanted to pick sites that make shopping more fun and interesting and easier. We also screened all of the websites to make sure that they fit our criteria for trustworthiness. For example, they have clean records with the Better Business Bureau.
That’s very important because it can be difficult if you want to return something. You’ve broken it down into categories and the first is One-of-a-Kind Finds. What does that mean?
A lot of websites carry things that are unique or things you're not going to find everywhere. is one great example. The users create all kinds of crazy products. For example, a cell phone charger that you stick to your windshield and works on solar power or a bendable power strip. Really interesting products there. Of a Kind is another great website in that group. Basically they roll out a different designer every week and have limited edition clothing, accessories, all kinds of stuff. You might not like it one week but the next week might be really great stuff.
That’s cool.
And One Step Ahead is for parents. They've got all kinds of great children's products that are screened by a panel of parents. When there's a product that people want and doesn't exist in the marketplace, they'll actually create products. So there's unique products there as well.
The second category is Secondhand Shopping. First on your list is
Everyone knows about eBay and secondhand shopping is a great way to save. A lot of these new sites work in social networks. They link up the whole secondhand shopping to Facebook and Twitter. Addoway works with your Facebook account, so if you're a Facebook junky and want to find a seller that you know other people have dealt with or someone who's in your network, this is a great way to find somebody who's trustworthy.
