When staying at your Rincon Apartment Rental consider being kind to the beautiful reefs of Rincon by using 'reef safe' sunscreen.
If you were not aware of the damage sunscreen may be having on our Ocean's reefs check out this full article by Justin Worland - How Sunscreen May Be Destroying Coral Reefs. A few highlights:
- Somewhere between 4,000 and 6,000 tons of sunscreen enters coral reef areas around the world
- Current concentrations of oxybenzone in these coral reef areas pose a significant ecological threat
- Sunscreens with titanium oxide or zinc oxide have not been found to harm reefs
Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
