HUMANS HAVE USED THE OCEAN AS THEIR PERSONAL DUMPING GROUND AND AS AN INEXHAUSTIBLE SOURCE OF RESOURCES. IF WE CONTINUE AT THIS RATE, BY 2050, IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THERE COULD BE MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH IN THE SEA.
126 TONS OF PLASTICS PER DAY
REDUCTION OF MARINE SPECIES
50-85% of the planet's oxygen is generated by phytoplankton in the oceans. Spain throws 126 tons of plastics into the sea every day. In 40 years we have lost 39% of the world's marine species population. The seabird population has declined by 70% since the 1950s. Our oceans are changing at a speed never seen before. Rising temperatures, acidification of the water, eutrophication, loss of biodiversity, changing ocean currents and only one person is responsible, the human being.
It is paradoxical to see how we are treating an ecosystem that keeps us alive by providing the air we breathe and regulating the temperature of the planet. If we do not act, soon there will be no turning back.
With this collection we have collaborated with the Parisian artist Samuel Eckert to reflect, through his sarcastic designs, several of the issues that affect our oceans and seas. From the impossible date between an octopus and a garbage bag to the ocean gangsters that are there to remind us that the plastic we use on land ends up in the sea.
Myopic since the age of 2 and a half, he has a particular vision of our world, trying to play also with shapes and words. He juggles between different practices and different supports (from mural painting to leather, passing through paper or canvas). He mixes his personal work with commissions for various clients: advertising agencies, magazines, children's associations, small and big companies, clothing brands and others.
