#sustainabilitysaturday from Hawaii!
Hawaii became the first state to ban sunscreens that contained harmful chemicals damaging the ocean’s ecosystem! With such beautiful coral reefs surrounding the island, it’s important that tourists are also aware of how their vacation might impact the environment! Sustainable and environmentally-friendly travel is important in places with such a diverse and protected ecosystem.
“That Can Harm Coral Reefs
The legislation prohibits the distribution of sunscreens containing chemicals that scientists have found contributes to coral bleaching when washed off in the ocean.”
