Most outdoor enthusiasts pride themselves on being good stewards of the land, sea, and everything that resides there. We are conservationists who want to leave the planet as good or better than we found it for future generations to enjoy. Knowing that, it has come to our attention in the last couple of years that most common sunscreen brands are having a detrimental effect on coral reefs around the world. Coral bleaching is becoming a major issue, and studies have determined that sunscreen is a contributing factor. But we don’t have to risk skin cancer. There is another way. Reef-friendly sunscreens to the rescue…
