There is no such thing as waste in nature; everything is reused in intelligent and natural cycles! And with the transformation of people and waste in mind, the ReTornar Project was created in 2011. 

Today, much of the waste produced by the carmaker, such as airbags, automotive fabrics, uniforms and seat belts, is intended for raw material for sewing groups from Indaiatuba (Cooperativa Uni Arte Costura) and Sorocaba (Comunidade de Amor Social Association — ASCA), which generates work and income for several families.

Toyota donates this waste, and the Toyota do Brasil Foundation invests in the qualification of the seamstresses’ work and buys the products that are produced.

Positive Impacts

Circular Economy: Using waste as new raw materials – airbags, seat belts, automotive fabric, upholstered boxes, and uniforms come to life.

Waste Management: Smart disposal of waste for reuse and upcycling, one of the alternatives for Circular Economy.

Women’s Empowerment: Generating work, income, and boosting women’s community groups.

Industrial Ecology: Inclusion of Toyota suppliers in the project to increase and share the positive impact.

Conscious Consumption: Products reinvented from waste, made by social labor, bringing those who create closer to those who consume in a transparent, positive, and healthy relationship.
