I read a story in the New York Times a while back (travel section) that said the chemicals in sun tan lotion were negatively impacting coral reefs. People of course are wearing much more of it then ever before plus not all are using a waterproof product, so that stuff comes off easily. Cry

The plastic microbeads in face cream are a nightmare as well.

Apparently we are heading to having more plastic in the sea than fish!

Didnt he beached the yacht recently somewhere? Things like this thread really makes me sad. Shame he didnt have this boat. Maybe we would sink somewhere along the way and didnt wreck the reef. :)
