Biodegragable Sunscreen for Dive Fest 2011
The organizers of Dive Fest 2011 will aim at promoting healthy coral growth this year.
According to Mr. Simon Walsh, president of the Dominica Water Sports Association, one of the ways in which they seek to do so is by marketing biodegradable sunscreen for Dive Fest this year.
Mr. Walsh said that although they have not yet begun to see the effects of non-biodegradable sunscreen, it is dangerous to coral growth and the effect is maximized when there are a number of people participating in water sport activities, such as in the case of Dive Fest.
Mr. Walsh added that he would like to one day see, only biodegradable sunscreen being sold in Dominica.
