“More and more people are beginning to realize that what they put on their bodies DOES make a difference,” notes Todd Steiner, Turtle Island Restoration Network’s executive director. “We’re finding microplastics in the Gulf of Mexico and currently urging the Maui County Council to ban the sale and use of coral-killing chemicals in sunscreen products. Stream2Sea is the only sunscreen tested by a third party to be reef-safe for coral larva, as well as fish and C elegans. Plus its products are sold in tubes made from sugarcane or jars manufactured using recycled milk bottles, saving our oceans from plastic debris.”
