AFAIK, gparted does not have a shred option. There is a shred command available from the command line and you should be able to do
sudo shred -v /dev/sdX
. That will erase the whole drive. I've not tried it but I expect that shed -v /dev/sdXP would erase partition P. Check the docs on that. Note that this will erase the formatting, so you'll have to recreate the file system(s) for any partitions you shred.
If you don't have shred installed, or can't install it for some reason, then you can use dd
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=4M
will overwrite the harddrive with all zeros. You might also use if=/dev/urandom, to write random-ish data over the drive before formatting.
Keep Calm and Carry On
