XATRACfilms video about Trenca

During 2014, the XATRACfilms team has been with us at several moments to record images of the activities and projects of our association. This collaboration started as a result of a Marketplace, within the Tàndem programme, that creates contacts and promotes synergies between companies and environmental and social organizations. It is an exchange agreement between Trenca and XATRACfilms: the company records a video on our entity and it gets our assisment regarding environmental issues. At the beginning of 2015, we hope to have already this video on Trenca’s website.
