Give sun protection instead of a disposable gift.

Do It

Instead of a pricy bouquet of flowers doomed to eventually wind up in the compost bin (or the trash), give someone you love a sun-shading hat, sunglasses, and/or a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Nothing says "I love you" quite like protection against the most common form of cancer.

GOOD Magazine recently shared a video showing how much the sun damages your skin long before you can see its effects:

    Shortly after I got interested in the science of sun protection, I convinced my mother to accept the gift of a Shiseido sunscreen (UVA & UVB protective--not all sunscreens are, be careful!) and promise to use it regularly. She previously was only using sunscreen when she planned to be outside all day in bright sun. On a recent family trip to Florida, I checked her sunscreen supply and was happy to find the bottle almost empty. Although her family is fortunate to have no history of serious skin cancers, I hope I've helped to make sure my mom won't be the first. Worrying about her sun exposure has made me more conscious of my own, too. I bought a new sun hat for myself last week.
