Make the Commitment!: Educate One Person A Week About the Dangers of Toxic Chemical Sunscreens

Make the commitment!: Educate one person a week about the dangers toxic chemical sunscreens have on the health of people, marine life, freshwater & ocean foods, corals. Tell them to beware of “reef safe” claims; instead look for ingredients to avoid: oxybenzone (benzophenone-3), octinoxate (octyl methoxycinnamate), homosalate, octocrylene, avobenzone, octisalate, homosalate, fragrances, nano-particles (“clear”; TiO2; ZnO). Remind them that these chemicals (toxins, carcinogens, hormone disruptors) absorb into the skin in 30 seconds, so regardless of if one enters the ocean, they aren’t filtered in wastewater so they still end up there.
