KIEHL’S TRAVEL RETAIL ASIA PACIFIC COMMITS TO THE FUTURE OF WILD PANDAS
Kiehl’s celebrates its 10th year partnership with non-profit organization, Shan Shui Conservation Centre, with its Kiehl’s Future Made Better indoor and outdoor pop-ups at Mova Downtown Shopping Mall in Haikou, Hainan. Held throughout the month of June, the ecologically designed pop-ups spotlight the endangered species, giant pandas, which are also a powerful symbol for species and ecosystem conservation. Through a seamless and interactive O+O journey, visitors may learn about the conservation works behind the partnership, as well as Kiehl’s sustainability commitments in formulating a better future.
Thepop-ups are constructed with 100% recyclable and reusable materials. With the outdoor pop-up featuring a panda jungle, visitors are led onto an educational augmented-reality journey to learn about the “Kiehl’s Does” initiatives. Through a scan on the jungle signs with a mobile phone, visitors may discover more sustainable actions taken by the brand, such as over 80% of Kiehl’s packaging are made with post-consumer recycled materials, and its raw ingredients sourced support responsible farming practices in over 600 communities worldwide.
The indoor tree house pop-up focuses on the brand’s 10th year partnership with Shan Shui Conservation Centre in protecting wild pandas. As part of the “Kiehl’s Gives” philanthropic commitment to environmental sustainability, the collaboration supports works behind panda conservation by removing hunting traps, purifying water sources and natural habitats, and monitoring the pandas’ movements and safety with infrared cameras. At the end of the adventure, visitors may redeem a sample of the brand’s No.1 bestselling Rare Earth Masque through an automatic vending machine (while stock lasts).
