As surfers, and people who spend most of their lives down the beach we have a responsibility to protect the very environment that we love to play in. Are you ready to embark on a journey towards a greener and cleaner planet? In this blog we take you on a an educational journey around Eco Friendly Products!
One of the most pressing issues of our time is the pollution of our oceans, which affects the delicate balance of marine ecosystems and endangers countless species. But fear not, for there are many ways in which we can reduce our impact on the oceans and make a positive change. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most innovative and eco-friendly products that can help us achieve this goal.
1. Let’s start with the basics, our daily habits
Using reusable products can make a huge difference. For example, bringing your own reusable water bottle and coffee cup can help reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the oceans. And when you’re out shopping, bring your own reusable bags instead of using single-use plastic bags.
2. When it comes to sunscreen, choosing a mineral-based, reef-safe option is essential.
Conventional sunscreens contain chemicals that are harmful to marine life, particularly coral reefs. Opt for a sunscreen that’s labeled as “reef-safe” or “ocean-friendly” to protect your skin and the ocean.
3. Next time you need to stock up on the cleaning products try making different choices.
We all know that the chemicals found in traditional cleaning products can harm marine life and pollute our waterways. Luckily, there are now many alternatives that are both effective and eco-friendly. For example, you can use vinegar and baking soda to clean your home, which are natural and non-toxic. You can also opt for biodegradable cleaning products such as Earth Wise, which are made from plant-based ingredients and break down quickly in water.
4. Take 3 for the Sea
Even the smallest of actions every time you are down the beach make a difference. Pick up any rubbish you see. A good initiative is to aim to take 3 items of rubbish whenever you visit a coastline! The ocean will thank you, and so will future generations of surfers.
In conclusion, there are many ways in which we can reduce our impact on the oceans and make a positive change. From eco-friendly cleaning products, to taking three for the sea and remembering those reusable products. We all have the power to make a difference. So let’s set sail towards a greener and cleaner planet. Let’s make the oceans a safe and healthy place for all.
