Buy Seagull Milk Sunscreen + Return Existing Sunscreen Tubes = Stop 1 pound of plastic from entering our landfills and oceans
DID YOU KNOW?
There are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic contaminating our oceans. That's a lot of plastic waste!
It goes without saying that sunscreen has a pretty short life span, often only lasting 1-2 weeks in the peak summer months. But what happens to the tube that once contained our sunscreen once we've emptied the tube?
The question of how to recycle commonly used cosmetic products is a super hot topic, considering less than 5% of all plastic gets recycled and the rest ends up in landfills. It can take up to 1000 years to break down plastic, and even after it may seem visibly gone to the human eye, it's not! The plastic breaks down into hundreds of micro plastics that end up floating in our oceans.
We're currently working on a way to take responsibility of the entire life cycle of our products, ensuring we minimise the impact we have on the environment, by making sure it gets recycled properly.
