As we float toward summer in the Northern Hemisphere, you may find yourself heading to the ocean for vacation. Putting on sunscreen is essential, but did you know that some types of sunscreen can damage coral reefs and harm marine life, which are already at risk due to climate change? Brands like @BadgerBalm create a “coral reef safe” sunscreen free of harsh, common chemicals like oxybenzone, which can trigger coral bleaching. Not only are many environmentally friendly sunscreens gentler on your body, but they can also help protect sea creatures. Be cautious of what you put on your body and into the environment.
