Summer is almost here and soon the island will be full of visitors

Summer is a busy time in Maui, with families from around the word coming for a week or two to enjoy paradise.   That is good for the economy, as it means the roads and stores will be crowded.  For that matter, so will the tourist boats taking people to Molokini  to snorkel and dive.

The sun here in Maui, can be brutal so by all means people should take action to protect themselves and loved ones from skin cancer.  I spend a lot of time in the sun teaching landscape photography, creating family portraits on the beach, and playing with my kids and dogs, so I have some suggestions.

Besides the obvious of covering up as much as possible or wearing reach guards with SPF protection, there are sunscreens that are good for you and good for the ocean.   Sadly most sunscreen products contain harmful chemicals that actually kill coral reefs and marine life like our endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

I like a product made by Stream2Sea, but there are other sunscreens being introduced that are also good.  The main thing is to take a moment and educate yourself and read the label.

I am hoping that individuals and resorts stop using sunscreen that has chemicals that are harmful to the environment, ocean, coral reefs, and marine life like turtles.

be pono and have a great summer.



About living with love and peace

this blog is not about me as much as it is for me to be of service to all people. I want to share the what I have learned and inspire people to live with peace and love. Everything starts inside our mind, heart, and soul. When we become at peace with ourselves and our life circumstance our positive outlook and intent can motivate others to strive for their own peace. The idea is to pay it forward.
