How You Can Make Waves
For over three decades, Heal the Bay has championed the ocean and watersheds of Southern California. We envision a world where coastal and freshwater areas are free from pollution and where marine life can thrive. Through science, education, community action, and advocacy we protect our local waters for future generations.
Every purchase you make through Heal the Bay Shop supports our award-winning programs. We host two cleanups a day on average and activate over 20,000 cleanup volunteers a year. You’re also supporting Heal the Bay Aquarium, a marine science education center that immerses 100,000 people annually in local underwater wildlife and habitats. In addition, your purchase supports weekly water quality monitoring for over 850 beaches along the West Coast. Our ocean and waterways thank you!
Truly unique items, ethically sourced
Our new shop is filled with fair trade items, handmade by artisans from around the world.
To make this a reality, we've partnered with NOVICA who since 1999 have been working directly with artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
NOVICA has built a unique infrastructure enabling purchases to go from the country of origin directly to the consumer.
Now, shopping with Heal the Bay helps keep our oceans clean and safe and supports artisanal producers and strengthens the fair trade movement.
