Grist’s guide to green iPhone apps
Green Sushi Selector: Can’t remember which types of seafood is safe to order at your favorite sushi joint? Use this app, using either the English or Japanese names for fish species, to see how the fish was caught. $0.99 no rating iTunes
Seafood Guide: Recommended by AppCraver, this app lists most commercially-sold fish by region (North America only) and rates those fish for sustainability. Brought to you by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the app may be fishy, but the info is certainly not. Free 3 stars iTunes
Whole Foods Market recipes: With this app a Whole Foods recipe is never far from your fingertips. Search by ingredient, course, or special diet, and use the locator to find your nearest Whole Foods store. FYI: It was an app store favorite in June. Free 4 stars iTunes
If you can only download one: Get the Seafood Guide. The info comes from a reputable source and users appreciate being able to look up both the English and Japanese names for sushi.
