WHY cannot you wear sunscreen in Hawaii?

Just imagine, 14,000 tons of sunscreen ends up in the ocean each year

That amount of sunscreen causes significant damage to coral reefs in Hawaii and the Caribbean.

The Haereticus Environmental Lab investigated Trunk Bay Beach and found that about 2000-5000 people per year visited the beach and left about 240 kg of sunscreen on the reef. Meanwhile, about 160 kg of sunscreen is settled on the Hanaum Bay reef daily.
