Our TAKE2 Pledge

Slip, slop, slap sustainably: reef-safe sunscreens

This summer, beachgoers are urged to slip, slop and slap sustainably by using sunscreen not containing toxic chemicals, to avoid further damage to our reefs. Chemicals in sunscreen can wash off directly to the ocean when swimming. They can also be carried off the sand to the ocean as the tide rises, particularly if beachgoers use spray-on sunscreen which leaves residue chemicals across the sand. Even sunscreen washed off in the shower has the potential to end up in the ocean.

Boon Wurrung Foundation Logo

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.

We proudly work in partnership with Arweet Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
