Environmental volunteer efforts recognized by industry leaders
What started as simply cleaning up the environment three years ago has led to Amway Russia’s Amway Charity Foundation “Responsible for the future” receiving a 2017 ECO Best Award.
The award recognizes businesses that excel in the field of environment, energy and resource saving – drawing attention to the issue of environmental safety and preservation of the integrity of the ecosystem. The annual presentation is held in Moscow each March.

Last month, the Amway Vietnam Nutrilite™ Power of 5 Campaign celebrated its one year anniversary. The campaign, that serves the BAC Giang Province, is operated in collaboration with Vietnam’s National Institute of Nutrition (NIN).
A key to the campaign’s success is Nutrilite™ Little Bits™, a micronutrient power that provides undernourished children the essential nutrients they need to grow and develop a healthier brain and body. Each 1-gram packet provides children ages 6 months to 5 years with the 15 essential vitamins and minerals they need to survive, thrive and grow.
