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 may be more plastic than fish in the sea.

LOSS OF MARINE SPECIES

MARITIME IMPACT

50-85% of the planet's oxygen is generated by phytoplankton in the oceans. Spain throws 126 tons of plastic into the sea every day. In 40 years we have lost 39% of the world's population of marine species. Seabird populations have declined by 70% since the 1950s. Our oceans are changing at a speed never seen before. Rising temperatures, water acidification, eutrophication, loss of biodiversity, changing ocean currents, being humans the ones responsible for it. It seems 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, there will soon be no turning back.

With this collection we have collaborated with Samuel Eckert a Parisian artist, to reflect, through his sarcastic designs, several of the issues affecting our oceans and seas. From the impossible date between an octopus and a garbage bag to the ocean gangsters who are there to remind us that the plastic we use on land ends up in the sea.

SAMUEL ECKERT

Myopic from the age of 2½ years, i have a particular view of our world, trying to play as well with shapes and words. Juggling between differente practices and differente supports (from wall painting to skin, through paper or canvas) he mixes his personal work with commissioned projects responding to issues from branding to illustrations for various customers: advertising agencies, magazines, children associations, small and large companies, clothing brands and others.Not to mention the various workshops he conducts with children and adults, building projects combining micro-narration and collective work - in order to develop their synthesis minds.
