Gandang Kalikasan, Inc. (GKI) through its brand Human Nature, is the fastest-growing social enterprise in the Philippines. Founded in November 2008 by Anna Meloto-Wilk and Camille Meloto, two daughters of Gawad Kalinga founder Tony Meloto, Human Nature is guided by the principles of being PRO-PHILIPPINES, PRO-POOR and PRO-ENVIRONMENT. It produces natural and organic personal care products that are 100% made in the Philippines and 100% free from harmful chemicals. It recently sold its one millionth product.
Today it announces:
- RACHEL GRANT as the first-ever Human Nature Global Ambassador
- Rachel is the ONLY FILIPINA BOND GIRL to date, appearing in the James Bond movie “Die Another Day” with Pierce Brosnan
- Rachel has starred in others movies including Jean Claude Van Damme’s film “Until Death”, as a body double for Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, as well as in numerous TV shows in England
- Rachel is also related to the Queen of England, is half-Filipino and was born in the Philippines
Rachel Louise Grant de Longueuil may only be half-Filipino in blood but she is certainly 100% Filipino at heart. Part English, Scottish, French and Canadian sharing blood ties with England's Queen Mother and Princes William and Harry, Rachel was born in Paranaque and grew up in England. The only Filipina Bond Girl in James Bond movie "Die Another Day" with Pierce Brosnan and the new host for Ripley's Believe It Or Not! (first time in 80 years to soley use a female host!), Rachel's acting achievements are overshadowed by her accomplishments of the heart. Through her family's Padua Charitable Fund, Rachel is deeply involved in various charities and has been a Gawad Kalinga supporter as early as 2007 when she visited GK Citi Village in Paranaque.
The partnership between Human Nature and Rachel has been serendipitous. As Rachel learned about the products and the advocacy, she has shown generous support and commitment towards helping Human Nature achieve its vision of providing livelihood for GK farming communities all over the Philippines. After her very first encounter with the brand, Rachel wrote "... I recently came back from the Philippines where I purchased many Human Nature products. I am completely addicted to them - my skin is the best it has been in ages! I have completely taken myself off all other chemical products. I would love to help out. Let me know if I can help in any way! It's for a great cause!"
Anna Meloto-Wilk, President and Co-founder, says about Human Nature and Rachel “Here now is a chance for Filipinos to be proud of something made in the Philippines, that is helping this country and is being used by Hollywood stars. We were so elated with Rachel’s email that we immediately seized the opportunity to ask her to be the first Human Nature Global Ambassador. She represents Human Nature to the rest of the world because of her beauty, brains and heart for the poor.” As Global Ambassador, Rachel becomes a model for being a truly world class Filipino as she embodies the heart to love the Philippines and actively show that love through giving back.
