PTMSC staff member Jamie Landry shares, “Toxic chemicals that are harmful to people, wildlife, and the marine environment are all around us. This can cause a feeling of helplessness when facing the complex chemical names on product labels.” PTMSC is relieving visitors of that challenge by offering an opportunity to decrease toxics in their personal and marine environments. “We are encouraging visitors to take a meaningful step - stop by and mix up your very own toxic-free spa treatment products. The experience comes complete with lab coats, beakers, and pipettes so you can feel just like a scientist – mixing and matching your favorite ingredients to find the perfect combination that will make you and the environment feel great.”
