Aptly named in my opinion – A jingo like ‘Save the Sea’ could really only come from an urban centre, where it may be possible to envisage the sea being endangered?

You can pick one of these up at Selfridges in London (UK) who let us know that:

£10 of the price you’ll pay for this 100% organic cotton beach towel will go to the Zoological Society of London and that Selfridges do not make any profit with the operation. I did my good deed, now it’s up to you.”

 

There is even an eNGO dedicated to saving the sea!

Savethesea.org:

Dedicated to supporting true oceanic causes and non-profit organizations from around the globe, who are committed to help raise awareness, Save the Sea and protect our environment.”

Please do view this website, even just to find out what constitutes a “true oceanic cause“? And to learn how to Save the Sea with a bracelet!

I have a question though – What are we saving the sea from? Somewhat swish beach attire and teenage fashion?
