Using sun lotion - make it reef safe!

 

There are some amazing companies doing good on this planet and I wanted to tell you what Green People are doing in West Sussex.

They produce organic beauty products – everything you need for skin care, sun care, hair care, body care, feet – and there’s even something for pets now.

And they make it for all the family – there’s something for babies and toddlers, teenagers, and adults, so all the family are catered for.

Green People do what they can for the environment, too.   They are based on the world famous rewilding success, Knepp Estate, in West Sussex in the south east UK. And they’ve been working with the Marine Conservation Society for the last 10 years.  The charity is dedicated to the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife.

Green People are making a difference:

They are donating sales of their natural sun care products to the Marine Conservation Society for ten years.  In that time, they’ve committed to using only marine-safe sun filters – and they’ve donated £150,000 to support the Marine Conservation Society.  To help raise awareness of the work that The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) do, Green People donates 20p from the sale of every marine-friendly Scent Free SPF30 Sun Lotion and Children’s Scent Free SPF30 Sun Lotion to this worthy cause.  The charity also receives a split share of 10% of their net profits.

The Green People team have also taken part in a beach clean at Worthing Beach, in association with the Marine Conservation Society.  Marine wildlife is under threat from all the waste and litter as they either eat it or get entangled in it.  Green People collected 31kg of rubbish from the area of beach that the society were cleaning up and surveying.

As we use sun screen to protect ourselves, it’s important to think about the impact sun lotions can have on marine habitats and wildlife.  Green People avoids the use of chemicals that have been found to cause harm to the marine environment even at very low levels. 

Green People have a number of eco-conservation charity partners, including Born Free and the World Land Trust.  They also have a number of  health and wellbeing charities - find out more here.
