Dec 16 - Still Looking for A Gift for the Ocean Lover or Environmentalist On Your List?


If you’re looking for some great gift ideas this season, consider some of these options.

Two books have just been released on ocean related issues.

Watercolors: How JJ the Whale Saved Us, is based on a true story by Terry Tamminen, former Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency. Tamminen describes his journey and experiences related to the rescue of JJ the Whale, a day old gray whale that was found abandoned in Marina del Rey, California. Read the synopsis and reviews.

Help support Californians Against Waste by purchasing Watercolors: How JJ the Whale Saved Us. For each book purchased, $5.00 will be donated to our organization! Click HERE for details and be sure to choose CAW from the drop down menu.

For a children's book, Sullie Saves the Seas, by Goffinet McClaren, is about a group of birds who come together to fight plastic pollution on their beach. Read more here. You can now purchase the book on Amazon; please note that there is no option to donate to CAW or other organizations for this book.
