Agua Zalva’s initiative aims to preserve one of the most important water sources in the world
This World Water Day, ABInBev’s Agua Zalva and MullenLowe SSP3 have launched #ZalvaElPáramo (#SavethePáramo), an initiative that aims to help save the Páramo, an alpine ecosystem in Colombia that provides 70% of the country’s fresh water.
Through an online store, people can ‘buy’ a portion of this special Andean ecosystem for the price of the bottle of water. For each bottle that is purchased, Agua Zalva will protect 1m² of Andean forest through the MiPáramo project. So far, over 23,069,097m² of the area have been protected through the project.
“This online store is an initiative that brings together our purpose of preserving the Andean Forest through a different value proposition, by using technology as a tool to amplify our mission and encouraging Colombians to join us,” stated Juan Alonso Torres, NABs marketing director at ABInBev.
The campaign aims to contribute to the conservation of more than one thousand square meters of Páramo by bringing together one thousand small actions and turning them into one positive and collective impact. For every bottle that is purchased, the project will help provide fencing around the Andean forest, plant native species, and educate the Páramo community about good agricultural practices.
“For us, finding actions and ideas for Agua Zalva that contribute to changing behaviours regarding the way we consume water has turned into an ongoing challenge,” said Diego Muñoz and Juan David Pardo, executive creative directors at MullenLowe SSP3.
