Through the program, the action of recycling, reusing, and reducing waste destined for landfills is promoted, educating society about the importance of recycling. Through this program, various materials are collected by inviting collaborators from partner companies to clean their work areas and bring from home anything that can be donated and recycled. Likewise, the Terra Foundation will promote the installation of recycling centers in schools or public spaces that meet the conditions for receiving and purchasing materials through partnerships.

Ecoterra-Smart Seed


Through reforestation initiatives and the voluntary efforts of member companies of the Fundación Terra, as well as volunteers from schools and communities, the reforestation program aims to support tree planting efforts in areas crucial for environmental conservation, such as damaged protected areas or their buffer zones. The program has various regional allies in each of the countries involved.


Additionally, other tactics are employed, such as distributing trees for planting. In this regard, the "Planta un árbol con UNO" campaign is carried out with our member companies. This initiative raises awareness among consumers at service stations, providing them with fruit trees that are planted in their homes or open spaces.


By harnessing technology, the Fundación Terra seeks to exponentially increase public-private efforts focused on the conservation and functional restoration of areas with forestry potential. This involves implementing a reforestation model that includes planting techniques supported by drone-assisted procedures for hard-to-reach areas, resulting in cost and time savings. The use of intelligent seeds encapsulated with additives that enhance germination rates is also part of this innovative approach.
