As part of our affiliation to the 1% for the planet program, and in a desire to be involved in our territory, we support associations throughout the year. Whether in the form of financial donations, or product donations, being active in areas such as environmental protection or supporting associations is an integral part of Vitamont’s DNA.
Surfrider Foundation Europe is a foundation that protects, safeguards and enhances the oceans and all the people who benefit from them, for more than 25 years. The foundation acts on a daily basis to fight against damage to the coastal environment and its users. Surfrider Europe intervenes via several levers of action, education and awareness, political advocacy, scientific and legal expertise, on 3 main themes: aquatic waste, coastal development and climate change, and quality of water and health of its users.
Vitamont’s participation in Surfrider helps finance the general functioning of the association.

Association ANPER TOS
Created in 1958 by a group of fishermen worried about the increasing degradation of rivers, it now carries out actions to help protect and restore sections of waterways in various French regions. Its vocation today consists of:
- Contribute to better consideration of the environment when preparing laws and decrees
- Obtain effective enforcement of nature conservation laws from the Administration and the Courts
- Raise awareness among the public, young people, elected officials and the main players in environmental management
- Help associations and users to defend their right to a quality environment
- Participate in the various national, regional and departmental bodies
- Maintain close relations with the departments of the ministries in charge of water
Vitamont was able to participate in these actions by partially financing a program to set up river trays aimed at collecting waste on the banks of rivers. This program not only makes it possible to collect waste to limit the pollution of rivers, but also to analyze it afterwards in order to make young generations aware of this phenomenon too often observed.
