We're proud to be a part of the community and giving back is very important to us. That's why each year we choose a school or non-profit in Santa Barbara County to support with a donation and bringing awareness to their cause.


Explore Ecology is an environmental education and arts nonprofit located in downtown Santa Barbara, empowering people to protect and preserve the environment, and inspiring them to make smart choices that shape a better future. Their programs include Art from Scrap (Creative ReUse Store and Gallery), Watershed Resource Center, Flows To The Ocean (a Marine Debris Prevention Program), and School Gardens Program.

Explore Ecology’s Executive Director, Lindsay Johnson says, “We are honored to be chosen as the Sea Glass Festival’s beneficiary nonprofit this year! Thanks to Karen and everyone who is part of this amazing Festival.”
