Mucha Tela Project
The MUCHA TELA Project, led by Les Créations de la Maison, seeks to offer a small input to the enormous environmental problem posed by the number of plastic microorganisms that are dumped into our oceans. The initiative consists of helping with the cleaning of waste on Spanish coasts, and raising awareness about responsible plastic consumption.
Les Créations de la Maison initiative was born because we feel that we are in debt to our planet. That is why we persist in our efforts to get fully involved in this very serious environmental problem.
We are well aware that plastic microparticles not only hopelessly pollute our oceans and coexist peacefully integrated into our coastal landscapes, but they have also ended up being part of our body. We hope, with this contribution, to shed some light on this very serious environmental problem. In addition, as a family business from Barcelona, we believe that it is important to pitch in with actions at the national level, since as we have seen, it is not necessary to go very far to see that we have the problem right here, on our beaches and coasts.

"WE ARE BECOMING PLASTIC"
El foco del problema
Microplastics are tiny particles, smaller than 5 millimeters, that have spread like a plague throughout the ocean. This waste that reaches the coast can take years in the sea and travel thousands of kilometers before being washed away by currents and being stranded on the beaches or forming part of our body through the food we eat.
On the other hand, in this new edition of #MuchaTelaProject, three microplastics cleaning expeditions were carried out on the beaches of Tenerife in collaboration with EcoOcéanos. Les Créations de la Maison has a massive group of professional divers with all the necessary diving equipment and civil liability insurance in order to go down to the seabed and clean all kinds of waste that accumulate in the waters of our ocean.
