  • The next time you buy sunscreen, check the active ingredients list on the back and avoid products that use oxybenzone, octinoxate, and octocrylene. Instead, look for products that use zinc oxide or titanium dioxide!

  • Choose sulfate-free shampoos and soaps! Not only does sodium laurel sulfate (and similar compounds) irritate and dry out many skin types, this compound isn’t quickly biodegradable and will linger in the waterways where it can be taken up by microplastics.

  • You can limit coastal eutrophication (water becoming too nutrient-rich) via runoff by being conscious of the chemicals in products that you purchase and use. Practice responsible gardening by limiting your fertilizer use to reduce harmful runoff!

  • We can all do our part to decrease harmful runoff into the ocean, which can lead to a deportation of oxygen in ocean waters, by using non-toxic cleaners and making our own compost instead of using fertilizer. Composting can be as simple as making a pile of yard clippings and organic kitchen scraps, just avoid adding any meat or dairy products.
