Oil spill: let’s help Mauritius!
Kitouni has the opportunity to work throughout the year with Mauritius,
Today it therefore seems natural to us to support our sister island in the face of the ecological disaster concerning the sinking of the MV WAKASHIO, The Wakashio hit a reef at Pointe d’Esny on July 25.
Located on the south-eastern coast of Mauritius, this reef is an ecological gem known for its internationally classified conservation sites, its turquoise waters.
Three weeks after being stranded on an island reef, it spilled 1,000 tonnes of fuel oil, which is weakening the ecosystems of Mauritius.
To help them limit the damage, and accompany them in this cleaning and depollution process, Kitouni is joining the NGO Eco-Sud initiative. This non-governmental organization is fighting to preserve the environment in Mauritius and is currently coordinating the action of hundreds of volunteers to stem the effects of the current oil spill.
We want to allow those who want to help with the cleaning of the lagoons, from their own country, to accompany the fight of the Mauritians. By donating € 1 symbolic on each sale made on our site www.kitouni.com, over the period of 1 month.
Let’s mobilize to minimize the impact of this environmental crisis.
Mauritius has the most beautiful coral reefs in the world and is a sanctuary for rare and endemic fauna. Many of its inhabitants depend on its waters for food and economy.
At Kitouni, we love the sea, the planet and all its inhabitants.
We are aware that any activity has an impact and we try to compensate for it by using ecological fabrics.
In order to protect marine flora and fauna, a durable techno-fabric in regenerated nylon ECONYL® was born.
It’s a collection of fabrics made from recycled plastics taken from the depths of the sea and irregular raw materials that had to be thrown away.
Polyesters produced with Seaqual and Polyamides with Q-nova.
For every kg of fiber produced, one kg of plastic is removed from the ocean. Maintain the same quality and properties as virgin treated polyester and polyamide fibers.
The production process saves 40% water consumption, 50% energy and 60% CO2 emissions.
We contribute our little grain of sand to the conservation of the ecosystem. Among all of us, maintaining the environment is possible.
Save the planet. Save the beach.
