Drink a Smoothie, Help a Sea Turtle at Jamba Juice Today

It's a win win, folks.  Show up to Jamba Juice today, purchase a smoothie or other healthful snack, and the company will donate 20 percent of the sale to help ensure the survival of sea turtles.  It's all in cooperation with the Florida-based Caribbean Conservation Corporation (CCC), the world's oldest sea turtle conservation group, to celebrate World Sea Turtle Day.

This June 16 marks the 100th birthday of the late Dr. Archie

Carr -- a veritable Jane Goodall of sea turtles. The CCC was founded in 1959 to support Dr. Carr's pioneering work in the study of sea turtle biology and life cycle.  The non-profit now carries on his legacy, dedicated to ensuring the survival of sea turtles through research,

education, advocacy and habitat protection.

Coincidentally, Jamba Juice announced the roll out of its first "Grab and Go" food menu in

California stores yesterday.  What a tease!  I guess we'll just have to wait until later in the year to give its

"portfolio of ready-made wraps, sandwiches and salads" a test.
