Help us help others

On a daily basis, we’re getting informed and educated about the incurable amounts of waste being dumped into our oceans and waterways. Action is being taken and obviously, more need to be done to clean up our waters and protect the species who call it ‘home’.

But what about a product we use on a daily basis? Especially during this time of year. With summer around the corner, we all need to use sunscreen. In fact, we should use it year-round.

Regular sunscreen contains chemicals. Not all brands use the same chemicals but they all do contain them. When you swim with sunscreen on, chemicals like oxybenzone can seep into the water, where they’re absorbed by corals. These substances contain nanoparticles that can disrupt coral’s reproduction and growth cycles.
