All the Way to the Ocean
All the way to the Ocean… all the way to the sea… all the way to the day when the whole world can say that our Ocean’s as clean as a living thing must be… and we must go… all the way.
We are blessed to have the participation of Grammy-award winning artists, all of whom are deeply connected with our story and mission, and have written and recorded original music for the film. This includes Ben Harper, Joel Harper and Burning Spear to name a few. They have all done a wonderful job on this first collaboration, with a solid mixture of very upbeat melodies and a positive message about protecting the seas! We look forward to more artist releases in the near future as we expand our collaborations!
We have included several tracks to listen to below along with links to iTunes where you can purchase them to support All the Way to the Ocean and the protection of our environment!

" In All the Way to the Ocean, Joel skillfully tackles non-point source pollution in an entertaining way that many children will find engaging. The book also contains references, links and other information to encourage greater reader awareness and action. This book has a timely message that can positively impact our environmental sensitivity and, more specifically, reduce our non-point source pollution. I urge you to consider this book for your sales venues, park libraries and as a gift for a child you know."
