The holidays are coming up, and if you're anything like me, you are just now realizing how many people are on your shopping list.  To get off to a good start, here are some great gifts that will impress your friends and family while benefiting Gulf Restoration Network.

For family and friends who likes jewelry, go to Lisa Cancienne's SILPADA website to check out beautiful sterling silver necklaces, earrings and more.  Lisa, a GRN member, is donating proceeds from purchases before Nov. 27th to GRN. During check out, make sure to select "view Hostess List" to associate your order with the Gulf Restoration Network event.

Defend Tshirt

For some local gear, look to Defend New Orleans, who has some special tees that benefit GRN.  We love the turtle!

Dirty Coast is donating 20% of all sales made on the 20th of November to GRN.


Bamboo Bottle Company makes insulated glass water bottles out of recycled materials and bamboo.  Hot or cold, this bottle is perfect for your coffee or holiday grog!  Bamboo Bottle Co. is one of our 1% for the planet partners, donating 1% of annual profits to GRN.

Bird soapTippy Tippens, GRN member and soap maker extraordinaire, donates 25% of her Bird Soap sales to GRN.  As you wash with this locally made soap, you slowly clean the ceramic bird within - made with Louisiana clay!

Grab a few gifts this season to support both local businesses and a healthy Gulf.
