Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) April 23, 2008
An exciting new organic tortilla chip shaped like a whale's tail has now acquired distribution in the Hawaiian Islands. Inspired by nature, the shape these chips will make you smile. Thick and great tasting, they hold up well as you make your way through your favorite dip and ten percent of the profits go toward worldwide research, conservation and education of our marine environment.
Whale Tails Tortilla Chips are made with certified organic, NON-GMO corn and seasoned with true Hawaiian Island Sea Salt "Alaea". This salt is unique to the Hawaiian Islands and is naturally low in sodium and rich in trace minerals. The creators of Whale Tails Tortilla Chips first discovered the wonderful flavor that Alaea gives to cooked corn while surfing the North Shore of Oahu in the early 70's. "It was a flavor I never forgot so Alaea was the natural choice," said Rick Grant Co Founder of Whale Tails Tortilla Chips. "We were also taught a lot of other lessons surfing the North Shore in those days, lessons sometimes we had to learn the hard way, but it helped us to respect the culture of the Hawaiian Islands and created our passion for protecting our oceans."
Rick is absolutely right about "chipping in" and becoming passionate about protecting the oceans. A "plastic soup" of waste is growing at an alarming rate and now covers an area twice the size of the continental United States. The "soup" is actually two areas of the ocean, on either side of the islands of Hawaii, known as the Western and Eastern Pacific Garbage Patches. About one-fifth of the junk - which includes everything from footballs and kayaks to Lego blocks and carrier bags - is thrown off ships or oil platforms. The rest comes from land.
Marcus Eriksen, a research director of the US-based Algalita Marine Research Foundation, said, "The original idea that people had was that it was an island of plastic garbage that you could walk on. It is not quite like that. It is more like a plastic soup."
