Our Co-Sponsors

Armenia Tree Project (ATP), a non-profit program based in Woburn and Yerevan, conducts vitally important environmental projects in Armenia's cities and villages and seeks support in advancing its reforestation mission. Since 1994, ATP has made enormous strides in combating desertification in the biologically diverse but threatened Caucasus region. More than 5,500,000 trees have been planted and restored, and hundreds of jobs have been created for Armenians in seasonal tree-related programs. https://www.armeniatree.org/en/

Koʻa Mineral Sunscreen: The goal of Koʻa Organics is to reduce the use of the ingredient "oxybenzone and oxtinoxate" commonly found in chemical sunscreen. https://www.koaorganicshawaii.com/

Sunscreen Exchange

We are hoping to set up a sunscreen exchange as well. Please check your sunscreen at home and bring with you any that contain the ingredient OXYBENZONE. Oxybenzone has been banned from sale in Hawai'i as it is destroying our coral reefs. Please help by reducing the impact and exchanging your damaging sunscreen for a sample of a much safer, FDA-approved, alternative.
