In the heart of Galicia, our home, where waves gently caress the shores with respect, a recent incident has shaken again our connection with the sea: a spill of plastic pellets, an environmental challenge that endangers our marine ecosystem. In our vegan footwear company, located in this beautiful region, we deeply feel this blow to our nature. For over four years, we have led more than 400 beach cleaning initiatives, and today, more than ever, we are committed to raising awareness about this serious problem and reinforcing our mission to protect what we love so much.

The recent spill on our Galician shores is not an isolated incident, but a worrying symptom of a broader environmental crisis. Plastic pellets, small but harmful, pose a significant threat to marine life and the health of our beaches. These often overlooked wastes infiltrate the ecosystem, affecting everything from the smallest marine organisms to the largest species, disrupting the natural balance of our marine environment.

In our company, we firmly believe that fashion and the environment can and should coexist in harmony. As creators of vegan footwear, we strive to minimize our environmental impact, a commitment that goes beyond shoe production and extends to the active protection of our beaches. Our beach clean-ups in Galicia are not just acts of conservation, but also a powerful message about the importance of environmental care in all our actions.

This pellet spill is a stark reminder of how pollution affects not only our natural environment but also local communities. The beaches of Galicia are not just spaces of natural beauty, but also fundamental to the local economy and social well-being. By committing to the cleaning and conservation of these coasts, we are protecting not only our environment but also the livelihood and quality of life of the people who call this region home.

Fighting these spills requires a joint effort and a change in our perception and habits. From opting for recycled products to supporting sustainable fashion, every step counts. Our vegan footwear is a testament to how responsible fashion choices can contribute to a greener and cleaner future. Actively engaging in beach clean-ups and educating others about the importance of these actions are vital steps towards positive change.
