Sunny Travels: Miami Beach, St. Martin and Anguilla

by kelly / September, 3 2014 01:30
It's officially the end of summer. I know, it makes me sad as well. Of course just because the summer is over, doesn't mean you should stop wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen should be worn year round. Sorry for the plug, but you know I had to. Anyway, I hope you all got in some sunny travels this summer. We sure did at Block Island Organics. This summer Will and I got to attend the wedding of my college friend. It was a destination wedding in St. Martin, an island in the Caribbean. The wedding was amazing and the location beautiful. I also go to spend quality time reminiscing and bonding with my college friends, something we haven't all done together in about 10 years. [More]

by kelly / August, 6 2014 01:30
Here at Block Island Organics we are passionate about smart, fun and safe suncare. As part of that we want to spread the word on sun safety to as many people as possible. It's an important topic and recently even the acting U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Boris D. Lushniak, got behind the cause and released "The Surgeon General's Call To Action To Prevent Skin Cancer". The document is a comprehensive 112 pages (don't worry, at the bottom of this article we have links to a few summaries) and as the title says a call to action for increased awareness, policies and research for preventing skin cancer.
