Earth Day – No Sharks’ Fin Soup

Today is Earth Day, so to show our commitment to environmental protection and sustainability, as founders of Originalo Sdn Bhd, we “SAY NO TO SHARKS’ FIN SOUP”. 

Since our launch, all our restaurant partners in Originalo have agreed to not serve sharks’ fin soup on our Originalo menus. A first step in hopefully making this a long-term commitment for many.

Both Frog and I would like to put an end to this unnecessary cruelty to sharks: After their fins are cut off, the sharks  are thrown back into the sea, alive. Environmental groups say more than 73 million sharks are finned for the Chinese soup and that one-third of the world’s sharks are threatened with extinction.

This is what we offer instead alternatively in Chinese restaurants for Originalo Delicious Dining (RM199):
