👍🏻👍🏻 Senate bill S. 1375 AKA the Reef Safe Act of 2019 👍🏻👍🏻
lm in support of and recommend the passage of the Senate bill S. 1375 AKA the Reef Safe Act of 2019 which would require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to develop standards for a “Reef Safe” label for sunscreens. In developing this criteria, the FDA would be required to consider active sunscreen ingredients’ effects on marine wildlife’s mortality and development and consult with appropriate federal agency heads, including the EPA Administrator and NOAA Administrator.
Oxybenzone and octinoxate are linked to numerous problems for marine life that live around coral reefs. As such, sunscreen customers who want to be environmentally friendly should be able to buy sunscreens that are clearly labeled as “reef safe” due to lack of these (and other reef-harming) ingredients.
