I Take The Pledge: Only #ReefFriendly Sunscreens

Our Amazing partners and sponsors of the Hawai‘i Chapter network, All Good, are asking us to help encourage people to take the pledge. The cornerstone of this campaign is taking the #ReefFriendly sunscreen pledge. The pledge is a simple action with important impacts as participants are asked to share their pledge with their social networks, to support policy efforts to encourage the use of #ReefFriendly sunscreens and to make the personal commitment to use #ReefFriendly sunscreens whenever possible.
