Siminetti’s Response To The Urgent Action Needed; World Ocean Day

Siminetti takes great pride in its manufacture of leading luxury surfaces that are kind to the planet. Using shells which are a bi-product of fishing for foodstuffs prevents excessive landfill and ensures the full utilisation of the farmed shellfish. Our raw materials are sourced from suppliers who also take great care in the oceans and those who inhabit the localities.

To mark World Ocean Day on the 6th of June we are pledging 5% of our June profits to Ocean unite. A truly remarkable charity who are “working to catalyse ocean regeneration by engaging and activating audiences on the importance of the ocean, as well as innovating change and accelerating investment in building ocean health and resilience.”

In coalition with many other charities Ocean Unite have the key aim of protecting 30% of the ocean by 2030. National parks and conservation sites are well known constructs here in the United Kingdom. However, the number of protected areas in our oceans around the world are sparse. The aim of protecting just 30% of our oceans for redevelopment of safe habitats and improved bio-diversity is an essential step in the right direction towards correcting the impact humans have had on the natural world.

With 90% of big fish populations depleted, and 50% of coral reefs destroyed, we are taking more from the ocean than can be replenished. To protect and preserve the ocean and all it sustains, we must create a new balance, rooted in true understanding of the ocean and how humanity relates to it. We must build a connection to the ocean that is inclusive, innovative, and informed by lessons from the past. THE UN.

There are a few facts about the ocean that take people’s breath away – in fact, the ocean provides the oxygen for every second breath we take – Karen Sack Managing Director at Ocean Unite.
