Turtle in the Ocean - World Oceans Day - How to Help - Social Stylate

As a company, we are passionate about the environment and believe in making eco-friendly lifestyle choices to help contribute to environmental conservation. In honor of World Oceans Day, here are 5 ways you can help protect the ocean.

Use reef-safe sunscreen

Did you know that most sunscreens are made with ingredients that are harmful to coral reefs and marine life? Our client, Kindred Skincare, makes great organic, reef-safe sunscreens that are safe for you and the environment.

Reduce your plastic use

Ditch plastic straws, swap bottled water for a reusable bottle, use canvas bags instead of plastic, use a thermos instead of single-use coffee cups and lids, ditch coffee stirrers and plastic plates, utensils, cups, and avoid products that contain plastic microbeads.

Buy sustainably sourced seafood

Sustainability means “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Use the Seafood Watch app to find sustainably sourced seafood near you.

Participate in beach cleanups

The next time you’re headed to the beach, pack a few of those recycled paper bags you save from Trader Joes and pick up some trash while you’re there!

Donate to organizations working to reduce ocean waste

Here are a few we like: Oceanic Society, 4Ocean, and Ocean Conservancy.
