WHY IS THE PLEDGE IMPORTANT?

Studies show that many chemicals in common sunscreens can be toxic to both human life and marine life and can impair coral growth, induce bleaching and damage reproductive systems. Your pledge will help preserve what’s left of our precious reefs.

SAVE YOUR SKIN AND THE SEA

Your body’s largest organ is your skin. What it absorbs can be beneficial or toxic. Healthy coral reefs are one of the most valuable ecosystems and greatest wonders on Earth. They are also worth billions of dollars in economic and environmental terms. Avoidance of toxic chemicals protects both your body and our precious marine life.

YOUR CHOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We know that small changes have a big impact. Our #ReefSafeMeSafe Pledge is a campaign to decrease the use of harmful chemical sunscreens in Australia and around the world. We urge everyone to choose sunscreen free from chemicals that harm our bodies, our oceans’ and our coral reefs.

#ReefSafeMeSafe PLEDGE

I vow to preserve and protect our precious marine life.
I vow to give my skin the protection it deserves.
I pledge to use only sunscreen that is reef-friendly and safe for my skin.
With this small gesture, I will reduce the footprint I leave behind.
