SUNSCREEN & OUR REEF

Make sure to read the labels before purchasing sunscreen. Avoid sunscreens containing Oxybenzone, Octinoxate and Octocrylene as well as sprays, powders and SPF 50+. Coral is damaged when oxybenzone exceeds a concentration of 62 parts per trillion.

STAYING SAFE IN THE SUN

Shirts, hats, shorts and pants shield your skin from the sun’s UV rays, reducing burn risk by 27%. Check out Environmental Working Group’s tips on staying safe in the sun. Please wear coral-safe non-nanoparticle mineral sunscreen containing zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

Island Green is dedicated to educating the public about coral-safe protection from the sun and the dangers of chemical-based sunscreen. Make your voice heard by spreading the message to family, friends, local retailers, your representatives and the community at large.
