All Good organic personal care products— is proud to announce their partnership with the 5 Gyres Institute’s SEA Change Expedition. The three leg sailing expedition will travel across the North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre from June 2-23 aboard the Mystic Schooner. This is 5 Gyres’ 16th ocean research voyage and welcomes musician and eco-activist Jack Johnson and friends, as well as plastic pollution advocates, scientists, filmmakers, artists and other change makers.
Elemental Herbs has teamed up with Klean Kanteen to offer the boat
All Good Sunscreen in bulk stainless steel containers, promoting
awareness of the importance of reducing dependency on single-use
plastics. The company also provided their SPF 33 All Good Sport
Sunscreen, SPF 20 All Good Organic Coconut Lip Balm, and a custom SPF 50
All Good Sunscreen Butter in limited edition reusable and recyclable
metal containers for each person on the expedition. In addition to the
eco-friendly packaging, All Good Sunscreen formulas are recognized by
the Environmental Working Group (EWG) as a top-rated sunscreen containing the safest, all-natural sun protection ingredients and are coral reef safe.
“We are extremely honored to sponsor this voyage,” said Elemental
Herbs founder, Caroline Duell. “Our partnership with 5 Gyres gives us
the ability to amplify the message of the SEA Change Expedition and to
be a part of finding viable solutions to plastic pollution. As members
of 1% for the Planet, we appreciate the power of triple bottom line
businesses supporting environmental organizations to create positive
In addition to plastics, chemicals from sunscreens are threatening
the life of coral and algae that are essential in preserving that eco
system. An estimated 4,000-6,000 tons of sunscreen are washed off in
coral reef environments every year leaving them bleached by synthetic
ingredients commonly found in sunscreens.
“We need more companies like Elemental Herbs, creating ocean safe
products and pursuing plastic alternatives,” said Marcus Erickson, 5
Gyres Research Director. “Companies’ leadership is vital in stopping the
global crisis of plastic pollution. Without Elemental Herbs, it would
be impossible for us to create an expedition free of plastic waste, and
the sunburn would be unpleasant too.”
