Holiday Gifts That Give Back

Make A Difference 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 natural world and the communities and wildlife that depend on a healthy environment. By supporting San Diego Coastkeeper, these companies support 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 today 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 unique jewelry – bracelets, necklaces, and earrings – directly support Coastkeeper. It’s a perfect gift for all your friends who are basically mermaids. Want a little sparkle for yourself? Get yours today, and you’ll match with some of the Coastkeeper staff! Get Yours Today.




Pure Project

Everyone’s favorite outdoor gear retailer is also a leading voice in environmental activism around the globe. In addition to persistent work to make their own materials and manufacturing processes more sustainable, Patagonia gives one percent of sales (or ten percent of pre-tax profits – whichever is greater) to grassroots environmental organizations through grants. On top of that, for the entire month of December 2019, Patagonia will match any donations made to Coastkeeper through their Patagonia Action Works program – instantly doubling your gift. Get Cozy and Give.



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.
