You are running out of excuses for not using sunscreen. The “I forgot sunscreen” excuse may no longer be valid.
A national non-profit organization based out of Massachusetts, IMPACT Melanoma works to reduce the incidence of melanoma through education, prevention, & support.
Available on IMPACT Melanoma’s website, the dispensers are weather-resistant and low maintenance. The dispenser holds a 1-liter bag of sunscreen, also available on the website, good for 300-500 applications.
For organizations looking to offset the cost of dispensers and sunscreen, space on each dispenser can be sold for advertising.
Dispensers cost $70.00 a unit. Pole mounting units are an additional $100.00. Bags of SPF 30 sunscreen are $180.00 for a case of 4.
This is a great opportunity for local governments and businesses to promote sun safety by installing sunscreen dispensers wherever people spend time outdoors.
BONUS: Boston’s use of these sunscreen dispensers made it onto an episode of The Simpsons.
