HOW IS OUR MISSION IMPORTANT?
Today’s environmental problems are becoming more and more a key concern for society. We are already consuming a daily amount of plastic of 5 gram and Japan is adding a yearly amount of 900t of new plastic.
WHAT WE CAN ACHIEVE
Waste has a huge potential as a resource. A lot of resources are wasted when they are not handled properly. The goal of this initiative is to increase the recycling rate and form a foundation for better recycling processes in Japan.
- Enhance awareness and knowledge about recycling
We provide information on the right way of recycling and evidence the separating waste makes a difference.
- Enable industry for a more cost-eﬃcient recycling cycle
We strive not only to provide information on existing recycling spots but strive to create new recycling spots in collaboration with the industry (e.g. transparent or white Polypropylene only collected by packaging producer).
- Reward environmentally friendly packaging and challenge non-sustainable packaging
By providing product packaging and sustainability reviews, we promote products with sustainable packaging and provide alternatives for products with non-environmental packaging.
