WHY DID WE MAKE RESTIA
A disturbing and unfortunate event that happened in Greek waters on September 10, 2017 was the occasion for the creation of Restia.
The tanker Agia Zoni II transported 2,200 tons of fuel from the Aspropyrgos refineries and 370 tons of fuel for maritime uses. The sinking of Agia Zoni II resulted in the formation of an oil spill that polluted the coasts of Attica, from Salamina to Glyfada. This tragic event not only stigmatized the coasts, but also the souls of all of us.
Restia can help deal with such accidents, with immediacy and responsibility, using its 2 products that directly absorb crude oil and its derivatives.
Many can simply say that it went, passed, and was treated. However, no Greek should accept this irresponsible treatment. Our view is that if not only the competent authorities, but also ordinary citizens are not made aware, such accidents will be fatal for our seas. Environmental crises are tackled with immediate control and action plan, strict enforcement of environmental laws and social vigilance.
