The Social Impact
By working directly with a local supply chain team in the Philippines, NaturLoop ensures the integration of local farming communities in the value chain by involving them in the collection and transportation of the husks, boosting farmers’ income streams through their integration in the supply chain process improving their welfare and livelihood.
Aside from its social impact, the product proves to be sustainable through the upcycling of husks and utilisation of resources that are readily available.
The use of natural adhesives ensures a low environmental footprint and non-toxic emissions.
“Sustainability means taking account of the interdependency of nature and humans. At NaturLoop we see a future where both are in harmony.”
