SHELTON, Conn., May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Edgewell Personal Care (NYSE:) Company (NYSE: EPC) and its sun care brand, Banana Boat, have been named as a Nature Finalist for Fast Company’s 2024 World Changing Ideas Award for its ‘Nest Domes’ project, aimed at supporting sea turtle conservation. The award highlights creative projects across a variety of topics that are helping to shape the world, including innovative sustainability initiatives.

Research has shown that up to 99% of sea turtles have been born female – a result of rising sand temperatures, which determines the sex of offspring during incubation1. With this is in mind, Banana Boat set out to help support the conservation of sea turtles in specific regions of Colombia. The team partnered with The Colombian Sea Turtle Conservation Program and  VML  to create the first natural domes aimed at regulating sand temperatures on beaches. The innovation aims to create ideal conditions, with domes achieving a temperature 4 ° C lower than that externally, in hopes of achieving an even proportion of female and male newborn sea turtle hatchlings.

Amy Knight, Vice President of Global Sustainability stated, “At  Edgewell, we view sustainability as a journey and we’re proud of the advancements we’re making toward our Sustainable Care 2030 strategy, which includes doing our small part to help care for our planet. We’re committed to creating positive impact through our brands and this recognition is a testament to the innovative and inspiring work being led by our Banana Boat team and local partners.”
