Why Reef Safe Sunscreen is Important

Globally, about 14,000 tons of sunscreen enters the oceans every year. Chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate are then exposed into the oceans not only from beach goers and swimmers, but also from sewage treatment plant outflows that carry out household products with these chemicals. As beachgoers, swimmers, and ultimately sunscreen users, we can start by making a difference as soon as the next time we use sunscreen! By choosing natural, reef-safe sunscreens, we can promote the health of our own bodies, our community, and the environment.

Fridays for Future

Changes can be hard. If it weren't hard, we would all be bringing our own bags and utensils and cups by now (imagine that). But with a little motivation and inspiration, all things are made easier.

When things feel hard, always remember why you're doing it, or who you're...

Transformation Thursday

We're all on our own journeys, all at our own pace, all capable of different kinds of changes in our lifestyles. But no positive change should go unnoticed.  Whether it's personally, or environmentally, we've all come a long way throughout our journeys. Every plastic toothbrush that has been swapped for bamboo, every toxic relationship we've grown out of, every new things we've learned for the better, every piece of trash we've picked up. Acknowledge your transformation and show yourself gratitude and love for how far you've come.
