Projeto 2020
Environmental Sustainability

We are proud to share the sustainable practices and initiatives that have become an integral part of Scents from Nature’s journey towards a greener future. 

As an essential and vegetable oil company, we understand the importance of responsible environmental stewardship and are committed to making a positive impact on the planet we call home.

 

Residue plant: Closing the loop

One of the cornerstones of our sustainability efforts is our state-of-the-art residue plant (ETAR in Portuguese). 

This facility plays a crucial role in ensuring that every part of our production process is utilized efficiently. Instead of letting any by-products go to waste, we have implemented a comprehensive system to repurpose and reuse them effectively.

Water conservation: Distillation and extraction

Water conservation: Distillation and extraction

Water, being a precious resource, holds immense value for us. In our commitment to water conservation, we have optimized our distillation and extraction processes to operate solely with water. 

By eliminating the use of harmful solvents, we not only prioritize the purity of our essential and vegetable oils but also minimize the impact on water resources.

Greenhouse for Conservation and Propagation

Greenhouse for Conservation and Propagation

Preserving biodiversity and protecting plant species is a priority for us. To support this cause, we have established a dedicated greenhouse where we propagate plant species that we harvest from the wild. 

This proactive approach ensures the sustainable cultivation of these species, reducing the strain on natural ecosystems and fostering their long-term preservation.

Empowering the community: Innovative utilization of Vegetable Oil residues

At Scents from Nature, we firmly believe in giving back to the communities surrounding our factory.

To that end, we have developed innovative solutions for utilizing the pulp of vegetable oils. By repurposing it, we produce soaps and energetic bars that not only contribute to local livelihoods but also promote sustainable living within the community.

Collaborating for a greener future

Our sustainability journey would not be possible without the collaboration and support of our dedicated partners and customers.

We are grateful for their shared commitment to environmental responsibility, which has inspired us to continue pushing boundaries and seeking new ways to make a positive impact.
