We promote skateboarding as a sport for a healthy lifestyle. For the Carnival 2020 we organized an event combining party and spots at Northside (A Coruña). Costumes, prizes, music and skateboarding to spend a great day full of fun and movement.
CLEANING BENS BEACH
An other beach cleaning took place on Saturday March 7, 2020. This time on Bens beach (A Coruña).
About 450 kilos of waste were collected. Among others there were many wipes, swabs, sanitary towels, fag-ends, batteries. These were found next to the elements that are already common in all cleanings, such as plastic bottles, pieces of plastic of all kinds etc. Once again, we want to thank the citizen participation for this much-needed work.
From December 5 to 7, 2019, we workeed on thew new edition of Fanzine Fest. A great line-up with artists from different countries next to a series of activities, such as talks and workshops, that made the event much more than a music festival. One of the pillars of this year was the commitment to sustainability, which was implemented in many different ways.
MERCADO DE LA COSECHA
Last summer we had a new edition of Mercado de la Cosecha in A Coruña, which fortunately had a lot of impact and assistance. This is a project of social commitment of Hijos de Rivera, and its objective is the transformation of the rural environment with a new model of sustainable and responsible socioeconomic development. WE joined with different activities on recycling and sustainability.
GALICIA CLASSIC SURF PRO '19
Between the months of August and September, during the celebration of ABANCA Galicia Classic Surf Pro, we participated with the Praia de Pantín Club in the ECO-LOGIC project, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact through the collection and recycling of waste and materials generated during the event. It was a pleasure to be able to participate in the most important surfing event in Galicia and to be able to contribute through different activities.
In July 2019 we went to Patos beach (Vigo), where the Sub 14 and Sub 12 Mixed Nigran Surf Cup took place. In addition, we had the opportunity to organize a beach cleaning, but also some recycling and environmental awareness workshops and a skate Contest thanks to La Conservera House.
PATINA NO CONTAMINA
June 21 is International Skateboard Day, and we take that opportunity to claim non-polluting means of transport. Skateboarding is an ecological way to get around and a very fun way to do sports. We traveled almost 6 km in our skateboards and we had an incredible time skating the city with a peaceful demonstration in which we tried to raise awareness among participants and citizens of the importance of reducing CO2 emissions on cars and other means of transport.
WE SURFING DAY
In this first joint action with VAZVA and Maeloc, we were able to enjoy an incredible day of surfing in Caión, recycling activities for the kids and cleaning the beach, as well as a series of talks on sustainability and social responsibility and an acoustic concert by the band Hexany, from A Coruña.
CREBEIROS NO MUNDO
At the IV Encontro Internacional do Lixo Mariño "Crebeiros no Mundo" organized in 2019 from a collaboration with RetoqueRetro and Mar de Fábula, we brought together different artists and collectives to talk about "crebas" as art and as a means of transmitting intoxication to the planet by the plastics that go to the sea directly.
There were talks, beach cleanings, artistic workshops, and a concert by Las Antonias in an unbeatable setting: the Castelo de Santa Cruz (Oleiros), and the beaches of the A Coruña metropolitan area.
CLEANING ORZÁN BEACH
During the last months we have carried out several cleaning days on the beaches of Riazor and Orzán. One of the most important took place on Saturday September 21, when Mar de Fábula organized, for the second consecutive year, a collection of marine litter on those beaches, within the International Day of Beach Cleaning, which every year promotes the Ocean Conservacy. More than 120 volunteers participated in the collection and cleaning tasks.
We were together with Maeloc at the inauguration of the new Northside Outdoor (A Coruña). An afternoon of outdoor skate on the new mini ramp where we could enjoy with people of all ages and levels. Nature is our way of life and that is why we support events that defend a sustainable lifestyle through sport and respect for the environment.
PRESENTATION WASTED SHOES
In May 2019, the presentation of Wasted Shoes with Gony Zubizarreta took place at the VAZVA store in Orzán (A Coruña).
We had the opportunity to chat about sustainability in manufacturing and a great atmosphere in the store with an audience who were encouraged to ask questions about new organic and recycled materials and their benefits.
The 100% organic collection that uses recycled, natural materials and gives a second life to plastics was presented there.
