It’s been a pathetic summer till now. Out of the six swimming classes my daughter had this summer (once every Wednesday), we enjoyed the sun only once. Three times it rained torrentially. For the pool, we pack swim suit, dress, pants, socks, hoodie and rain jacket. Obviously, no sunscreen. I am imagining that the sunscreen producers are all going out of business this summer. Well, what can I say, not a big loss–just read the Environmental Working Group’s 2009 report on sunscreens
, which shows that three out of five are completely inefficient.
