Help Ban Oxybenzone In Sunscreen

Mahalo for your interest in eco-friendly and sustainable initiatives across Hawaii. We are working with a number of groups to help pressure our state lawmakers to make good decisions for our reef health.

The reefs are in terrible trouble and chemicals like oxybenzone has been shown to impact coral making them more susceptible to coral bleaching and other events. Reef health is impacted by stream pollutants, ocean-side development runoff and human introduced chemicals along with a variety of non-local issues. We aim to help improve the reefs by doing what we can locally to make them more resilient to the next coral bleaching event.

We need to raise awareness by posting a public service announcement in major news publications that are known to be read by and influence local decision makers. Our goal is to raise money to fund a campaign to do that.

The focus of the PSA is to help pass a bill in the legislature that will ban the sales of products containing oxybenzone in the State of Hawaii.
