News of the chemical sunscreen ban in Hawaii—and the traumatic effects these chemicals have on the reefs which led to the ban—became national news. What was once considered a coastal issue became a global issue—another huge victory since water runs down and eventually makes its way to the oceans. Here’s a peek at some of our press:
- Fast Company released a story on the ban and what it means to sunscreen companies. They called out Goddess Garden sunscreens as a reef-safe brand and even shared the news that CVS was planning to reformulate their store-brand sunscreens to avoid those chemicals.
- The Denver Post talked about our efforts to support the ban and helped spread the word on how fast the reefs are disappearing as a result of harmful sunscreen chemicals.
- SWAAY Magazine shared Nova’s story on why protecting the coral reefs became her rallying cry and the steps Nova and our company took to help save the reefs.
- Conscious Company named Nova as one of their 35 World-Changing Women in Conscious Business for her efforts to protect the coral reefs—on stores shelves through reef-safe products and though her activism efforts.
