Beach trips can be costly to the environment. Here’s how to reduce your impact.

Allyson Chiu of The Washington Post outlines different ways to reduce your environmental impact at the beach.

  • As you hit the beach for vacation, there are several things that you can do to reduce your environmental impact.
  • Some sunscreens are harmful to marine life and wash off in the ocean. Using reef-friendly sunscreen protects sea life and your skin.

  • When in doubt, try to leave the beach in a better condition than how you found it.

“For many people, summer is synonymous with the beach.
