Go Green’s Safe Sunscreen Swap!

June 8, 2018 | Blog

School is out! In honor of summer break, trips to Barton Springs, and BBQs, we present you with our Safe Sunscreen Swap! While sunscreen is a necessity in our neck of the woods, make sure you are choosing the safest options for you and your family. According to the Environmental Working Group, over 67% of sunscreens on the market do not provide adequate protection from harmful UV rays and/or contain dangerous ingredients.

A few general guidelines to keep in mind when shopping for sunscreen:

  • Avoid any product that contains OXYBENZONE – Oxybenzone acts as an estrogen and is linked to significant hormone disruption in men.
  • Avoid any product that contains VITAMIN A – Vitamin A can react with UV rays and increases the risk of skin tumors. Sport sunscreens are notorious for containing Vitamin A.
  • Avoid SPRAY SUNSCREENS – The FDA has raised concerns about inhalation risks, and the spray makes it difficult to apply evenly and accurately.

Alex came out today to clear a drain on my AC Unit and to check my unit inside and out. Alex was very friendly and professional and cleared my drain quickly. Thank you Go Green for providing great service and I look forward to the lasting relationship with the maintenance plan offered.

Excellent Service

The service and experience were great. They got someone out to me the same day and the tech, Alex, was able to identify and repair the issue quickly. Alex provided great feedback on where my system is now and what to look out for.

Danilo S.

Professional and Knowledgeable

Go Green has served me well for several years. Their personnel is always very polite and respectful. Tonight I had to call because my system stopped. Alex came out within an hour and got everything fixed. I am grateful they offer services 24/7. I had a technician, Mark come to my home. He was personable and knowledgeable. He was very helpful and there was no pressure when it came to services. I would definitely recommend this company to others in the future.
