The Good News

Coral reefs naturally repair when we remove their stresses, and the solutions to coral reef decline already exist. Of course, we all need to make the switch to a natural, reef-safe sunscreen like SurfDurt. If you’re purchasing another brand and you want to be sure it’s reef-safe here’s a couple indicators you can look for! Your sunscreen’s only active ingredient should be non-nano zinc oxide, even regular zinc oxide will have slightly higher toxicity. Next, check out your non-active ingredients and try to avoid an excess of chemicals, the more naturally derived ingredients the better and in the best case scenario, every single ingredient can be easily traced back to something natural. Besides choosing the right sunscreen, here’s some other things you can do to help protect the reef today:
Avoid Chemical ToxinsAvoid Chemical Toxins

Avoid toxic chemical products, pesticides & fertilizers, even if you're thousands of miles away from a coral reef ecosystem, these all end up in the watershed eventually.

Travel WellTravel Well

Mind local conservation rules. Don't touch when you dive. Support reef-friendly businesses & ask hotels, tour operators & stores in coastal regions what they do to protect our reefs. Let 'em know you're an informed consumer that gives a damn.

Decrease ConsumptionDecrease Consumption

Making responsible seafood choices or switching to a more plant-based lifestyle is one of the best things we can do to save the environment.
