“Dear PoPville,

This month’s Washingtonian mentioned that Ginger in the MGM offers birds nest soup, off the menu, for $188. Having spent time in Thailand studying various sources of harm to the ecosystem there, I thought it would be worth flagging that this delicacy can be incredibly harmful to the environment, as well as a source of violence and black market trade. Ideally Ginger should take a hard look at this offer, or disclose their supply chain to show they are sourcing it from sustainable and reputable sources.”
