It’s Saturday June 9th 2012 , National Get Outdoors Day! So take a some time to enjoy the summer biking with the family, picnic, frisbee or just taking a walk. The campaign is a reminder to adults and children about the importane of a healthy lifestyle and being active outdoors.Created to reconnect kids and other park visitors, Saturday’s fifth annual Get Outdoors Day will offer free admission to many parks, forests, wildlife refuges and other public lands throughout the nation. My outdoor activity will consist of a local beach clean up on Far Rockaway ,NY so I will have sunscreen in tow.
Choosing a sunscreen and sunblock is a must for the summer . Here are some green suggestions to try for the family.
Sunbow Suncreen brings color to sun protection
For kids specifically, this a great brand to try is Sunbow Sunscreen. This brand is crafted in brilliant colors that signify various fruit flavors with fun packaging. What I like is that is comes in a hand stick which is perfect for taking to the beach or any activity with the kids. All Sunbow product are made without harsh chemical natural ,protect from UVB/UVA rays. Psst…. A little secret I know some adults buy it for themselves.
The Sunbow Sunscreen collection includes a rich Zinc Oxide Cream ($12.99), bubble gum scented Sunscreen Spray ($9.99) and a soothing Sun Stick ($7.99). Television favorites including Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob Square Pants grace the front of each product, making children excited about the application process. All this and they smell great!
