July 6, 2023
Reflecting its growing awareness of the critical importance of sustainable development, Interparfums has decided to strengthen its CSR approach by supporting The SeaCleaners, an NGO devoted to protecting the planet and its oceans.
Created in 2016 by the Franco-Swiss navigator and explorer Yvan Bourgnon, The SeaCleaners is a registered non-profit organization that acts for the long term conservation of the ocean and for the reduction of marine plastic pollution.
In this context, and in order to further contribute to protecting the environment and restoring ecosystems, as a sponsor of The SeaCleaners, Interparfums will contribute in 2023 to the construction of a new Mobula 8, a multipurpose cleanup vessel.
