PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) -- With the rain (hopefully) gone and the sun out, it is time for our skin to get covered up, daily, with sunscreen.
And while protecting our skin is essential, the chemicals in sunscreen are causing issues to the environment, especially when you are on vacation at the beach.
Chemicals in sun screens like oxybenzone and octinoxate are damaging marine life.
Companies are now following this trend by making sunscreens that are “reef-safe.”
If you are looking for an easy way to help out the environment, try using a “reef-safe” sunscreen.
