LATAM has introduced new amenity kits with a focus on sustainability and local design. The new collectible ‘Travel Eco Kits’ for Premium Business guests are based on local design, include sustainable products, and are designed to be reusable.
On Tuesday (February 22, 2022) LATAM announced the introduction of sustainability focused amenity kits created by local artists. The ‘Travel Eco Kits’ for Premium Business customers are based on local designs and include sustainable elements. The collectible bags are designed to be reused, for a long and versatile lifespan. Following the airline’s commitment to eliminate single-use plastics, the bag is delivered unwrapped and the included amenities incorporate reusable materials such as a bamboo toothbrush with a sugar cane cap. The earplugs have been wrapped in Kraft paper, while the socks and eye masks are made from recycled plastic.
The Travel Eco Kits include cosmetic products such as hand cream, lip balm and a refreshing towel created by Feito Brasil, a certified B Corp™ brand. The certification recognizes performance in financial, social and environmental sustainability. Feito Brasil’s products are local produced by Brazilian artisans and are cruelty-free and vegan, incorporating natural ingredients and raw materials. The new amenity kit design displays the work of South American artists chosen by LATAM for their emerging recognition and/or for being transformers of their communities. The first two artists are Tomás Olivos (Chile) and Hamilton Aguiar (Brazil), while future designs will be created by artists from Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Argentina.
Premium Business Class guests traveling on the Santiago-Madrid and São Paulo/Guarulhos-Miami routes will be the first to receive the new Travel Eco Kits, which will be progressively implemented on all routes throughout 2022.
