As one of the biggest brand distributed around the world, Kiehl’s believes that the commitment it’s not only for consumers, but it’s for community and environment too. This has been done by Kiehl’s since 2014 with the movement called “Say No to Plastic” in collaboration with the government to reduce the amount of plastic use in Indonesia. In 2015, Kiehl’s Indonesia collaborated with UNESCO to preserve Borobudur temple as Indonesian culture heritage.

This year Kiehl’s Indonesia with a community called “Saya Pilih Bumi” are back with the movement #10MenitUntukBumi (10 Minutes for Earth) which focuses on waste problems, especially single use plastic waste. Facing this problem, Kiehl’s provides recycle boxes in every Kiehl’s stores. Consumers can return their used empty bottles, which then will be recycled.
