Holiday Gifts That Give Back to Our Waters

Make a Difference For Our Waters This Holiday Season

Here at San Diego Coastkeeper, we’re proud to partner with a handful of local and sustainably-minded companies that are dedicated to giving back to our environment and the communities and wildlife that depend on clean water. By supporting San Diego Coastkeeper, these companies help fuel the programs and projects that have the greatest impact on the health of our rivers, creeks, canyons, beaches, bays, ocean, and coastline. You can make a difference this holiday season by showing these local companies some love, and keeping them in mind for all your holiday shopping needs:

Sand Cloud

Sand Cloud makes unique, beautiful beach towels and beach apparel for ocean lovers. They are dedicated to protecting the ocean and marine life, so when you purchase items from Sand Cloud, a portion is donated to Coastkeeper to support our programs and protect the environment. We know that in San Diego, you can never have too many beach towels, so go on and support towels that give back. Shop Now



Clam and Clasp

Clam and Clasp is a local jewelry company that uses sustainably collected shells to make sparkly adornments designed to give back to the sea. 20 percent of the profits from their delicate and striking bracelets, necklaces, and earrings directly support conservation-minded nonprofits, including Coastkeeper. It’s a perfect gift for all your friends who are basically mermaids. Because each shell is different, each piece of jewelry is perfectly unique. Want a little sparkle for yourself?

We’re excited to partner with our friends at eMpulse, a local sustainable clothing line. Their “Save the Fishies” collecting is donating 10 percent of profits to Coastkeeper. Each clothing item in the collection is up-cycled and one-of-a-kind. Head to the eMpulse page to shop these sustainable styles. By shopping the Save the Fishies collection, you’ll also be advancing clean water in San Diego for the communities and habitats that depend on it. Save the Fishies.

The Gift of Clean Water

Know someone who isn’t that into having too many possessions but loves being outside or in the water? Show the environmentally inclined minimalist in your life that you care with a one-time or monthly recurring donation to Coastkeeper in their honor. We will put your gift to great use fighting against pollution, educating children, cleaning up beaches, and protecting San Diego’s rivers, streams, and coast. Make a donation in the month of December, and Patagonia will double it for you! Give Here.
