  • The Monterey Bay Aquarium partners with food service providers like ARAMARK and the Compass Group who commit to transition to all sustainable seafood in their operations. These operations are businesses, universities, schools, sports and entertainment facilities, parks, zoo and aquariums. 11 guides national, regional, and sushi. Each listing “Green Best Choice” Yellow Good Alternatives, and Red Avoid items. 22 million distributed with the help of our partner zoos, aquarium, and restaurants. While the guides are great, there are some fundamental things that hamper their usability. How many of us want to carry another thing in our wallets? My leg already goes numb when I drive long distances. What happens when items move categories or we add new seafood? You have to remember to check back in a get a new one. Naturally, we were thrilled with the possibioity of turning this into an iphone app. You might forget your card, but who leave home without their phone?

    • A children’s toothbrush I designed with every best intention to make my contribution to the betterment of the human condition through design was dropped on my desk, all bleached and worn and encrusted with sand. It had washed up on a remote beach in Baja California in front of a friend of mine who went to seek unspoiled nature and wild life there.
