“At Natura we are always looking for innovative ways to generate a positive impact on people and the environment. Thanks to the “Una Vuelta +” program, we have been able to close the cycle of our advertising materials, thus reducing our waste and generating work for Peruvian women. This great process has also allowed us to obtain beautiful products made with our own material, which we use as incentives to motivate and mobilize our network to continue building a country with More Beauty and Less Waste”, says Alexandra Oliva, Reputation and Communication Manager.

From her side, Karina Vázquez, Chief Commercial Officer for Latin America and the United States of Latcom, who leads the ‘Una Vuelta +’ project, adds: “It is always a satisfaction to continue achieving results on this path in search of equity, inclusion and caring for the environment. Specifically, we generate value with social and environmental impact, reusing materials to create quality products and generate genuine employment in groups of women in communities of social vulnerability. In this way, we give ‘A Vuelta +’ to the canvas and leftovers from similar campaigns in OOH, and we transform them into an opportunity for social help”.
