Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Sunumbra Sunscreen. Dual interests in healthy living and the natural environment led Sunumbra’s creator, Susan Ingram, to extensive research into the benefits of natural and organic products. The discovery of a unique combination of plant extracts is the key ‘hidden secret’ to being able to substitute botanicals for the harmful chemical filters found in almost all sunscreens sold today. Sunumbra believes that you don’t have to destroy your skin with chemicals to avoid getting burnt by the sun – so it’s products are all natural, containing organic and wild sourced ingredients.
