Protecting People & Oceans
DONATING $5 FROM EVERY SALE
Millions of hectares were lost in the Amazon and Californian wildfires, however the Australian bushfire crisis has surpassed them both - many times over.
It has burned an estimated 6.3 million hectares (16 million acres; 63,000 square kilometres; 24,000 square miles). Destroyed over 2,500 buildings (including over 1,300 houses) and killed 25 people, with a further six missing in the State of Victoria as of 5 January 2020.
It is widely-reported that an estimate near half a billion (480 million) animals have been killed by the bush fires in Australia so far.
We are in a state of emergency, which is why $5 from every online sale will be evenly donated between Wires Wildlife Rescue, Wildlife Victoria, New South Wales Regional Fire Services and CFA Victoria.

PALAU TO BAN TOXIC SUNSCREEN
The Pacific nation of Palau has become the first country to ban sun cream that is harmful to corals and sea life.
Palau's President Tommy Remengesau said: "We have to live and respect the environment because the environment is the nest of life."
"Toxic sunscreen chemicals have been found throughout Palau's critical habitats, and in the tissues of our most famous creatures.
"We don't mind being the first nation to ban these chemicals, and we will do our part to spread the word."
What Makes SunButter Reef-Safe?

Australia's First Reef Safe Sunscreen in Reusable and Recyclable Tins
SunButter's Reef Safe Sunscreen protects people without compromising the ocean's health.
It is common knowledge that sunlight has harmful UV rays. It is because of this, we’ve been rightly taught that sunscreen is necessary to protect ourselves, especially for those who spend a lot of time outdoors. However, the majority of sunscreen products contain chemicals that are harmful to both marine and freshwater ecosystems.
