Get the skinny on sunscreen before summer vacation!

Summer is finally here, so we’re talking sunscreen and body products - the things that so many of us use but rarely think about how they affect our own health and impact the environment around us. To help inform this conversation, Jenna Valente is joined by an expert in eco-conscious body products, Mike Malterre, Executive Vice President of Stream2Sea, which is a body care company that makes human and water safe body products.

Jenna Valente

A passion for conservation and appreciation for the natural world was engrained in Jenna at a young age. Her father was in the Coast Guard. This meant she always had the fortune of living near the ocean, including Hawaii, Washington State, and Maine. Both of her parents encouraged her to spend the majority of her time outside. As a result, she finds that she is most comfortable barefoot and exploring the coast, countryside, or mountains. Her favorite thing about the ocean is the sheer power of it all. Jenna joined the American Littoral Society as the Healthy Oceans Coalition Coordinator from the Chesapeake Research Consortium where she was a member of the communications staff and focused on building the brand of the program and ensure the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Jenna completed her Executive Master of Natural Resources from Virginia Tech in 2015 and also has her Bachelors in Communication and Journalism from the University of Maine.
