Reef Relief

I’m on vacation this week. I’ll hopefully be offline most of the time, spending time on the beach. In case you missed it, though, how we beach is important to the sustainability of the beach. Case in point: our sunscreens have become very sophisticated in terms of skin protection. But they’re actually damaging to coral reefs. That’s why places like Hawaii and Key West have banned the use of sunscreens that contain several of the worst chemicals. That covers most commercial sunscreens. Today, I made sure to buy reef safe sunscreen. And I also made a donation to Reef Relief, which is working to protect the world’s reef ecosystems.
