Voltar Instituto Papel de Menino

Antilhas supports and is the main founder-partner of Instituto Papel de Menino (IPM), which acts in social inclusion of young people that were under social and educational regime, through education, capacitation and professional qualification and the renewal of personal appreciation and family and social bonds.

IPM is constantly growing and a proof of that is that IPM is now within Terracycle, a company that creates green products from several types of materials that are difficult to recycle and have no suitable destination. Terracycle has exclusive partnerships with companies such as Kraft Food, Frito Lay, Mars Wrigleey and many others.

One of Terracycles projects in partnership with IPM was the development of bags made out from discarded Nestl chocolate labels. 286 labels were required, manually tailored to create each bag. All the 300 units ordered by Nestl were used to hand out the companys gifts.
