Their field of work is to investigate and analyze, through the food collected by them in rubbish bins.

They focus their field of action on environmental actions and events organized in the streets in order to prove that that there is a mutual connection between the intolerability of our planet and the food products defined as products subject to spoilage under the quality policies of hypermarkets, supermarkets and groceries, as well as producing energy out of it to make their art sustainable by itself.
