Recycling


PAPER RECYCLING

In 2018 we received 3rd prize in the campaign "Recíclame, cumple tu papel" of Aldeas Infantiles S.O.S. Perú, in partership with the Company Kimberly -Clark.  We collected more than 22 tonnes of paper, a figure much higher than 9 tonnes of paper collected in 2017, which is why we were recognized as a Socially Responsible Company with Children.

Thanks to our participation, we covered 55 food scholarships for children of Aldeas Infantiles S.O.S. Peru. In addition, we have generated an environmental benefit of 374 trees that were spared and saved as much as 1.762 m3 in water and 104.621 kWh in energy.


PLASTIC RECYCLING

Luz del Sur, in partnership with Ayudando Abrigando and Fundación Oli, provides support to populations in areas affected by poverty, those in which there is no access to basic needs or protection from the arrival of frost and cold that threatens the health of the inhabitants.

We join this solidary recycling project with the intention of creating awareness about the importance of efficient recycling of plastic and preservation of the environment, through the donation of plastic so that it is transformed into raw material for the manufacture of blankets, in order that they reach Peruvians in need of different points of our country.

In 2018 we collected 819 kg of plastic, equivalent to 63 blankets that gave shelter to people living in vulnerable areas, and at the same time, we reduced our ecological footprint.

Nowadays, we are one of the main collaborators of Ayudando Abrigando in PET and PAD plastic donation, and we feel increasingly committed to both our community and the environment.
