Petition to Protect Hawai'i’s Coral Reefs: Ban Toxic Chemicals in Sunscreen.

CORAL REEFS vs SUNSCREEN:  A chemical called oxybenzone which is found in sunscreen and other personal care products is decimating coral reefs, making coral more susceptible to bleaching.  More than 50 percent of coral off the West Hawaii coastline has bleached and possibly died this summer. Any small effort to reduce oxybenzone pollution could mean that a coral reef survives a long, hot summer, or that a degraded area recovers.  While there are a lot of things we can’t do anything about, this is one thing we can do right now for the environment.  

We support Sen. Will Espero’s legislation for Hawaii, to ban sunscreen with oxybenzone beginning in 2018.

This petition will be delivered to:
