BOOSTER's project to support sustainable Tanabata ornament efforts

BOOSTER's project to support sustainable Tanabata ornament efforts

At BOOSTER, a cloud funding service co-operated by PARCO, we have started a project to support sustainable Tanabata ornament efforts, “I want to deliver TANABATA PAPER recycled Sendai Tanabata ornaments.”
The Sendai Tanabata ornaments have not been recycled until now, but in 2019, the Tanabata ornaments that were actually used were regenerated to create TANABATA PAPER.

However, the Sendai Tanabata Festival in 2020 was canceled this year. Booster has launched a project to support the TANABATA PAPER that lost its pride.
This project's perpouse is to connect sustainable Tanabata ornament efforts to 2021.

Paper bag recycling project started at Sapporo PARCO

Sapporo PARCO collaborated with the creator group "ARAMAKI", who remakes salmon boxes that have finished their roles, and started a paper bag recycling project on July 1st, in line with the charge for plastic shopping bags.
We collect paper bags from our customers, attach the stickers we created, and recreate them attractively and distribute them free of charge.
We aim to create an opportunity for our customers to think that they should “value things without wasting them” by reusing and reusing what was supposed to be thrown away into “things that we don't want to throw away”.

BOOSTER Challenge to solve new social issues! Sale of kaleidoscope "REF" to see garbage started

The cloud funding service "BOOSTER," co-operated by PARCO, has launched a project [Kaleidoscope to see garbage "REF"] with the concept of "converting innumerable garbage into innumerable flowers."

The kaleidoscope “REF” was developed as a product to focus on everyday everyday trash problems by reusing trash as an object of appreciation as a “challenge to solve social issues”.
10% of the sales of the kaleidoscope “REF” are returned to environmental protection activities such as garbage problems, and the amount returned per piece is equivalent to about one week's worth of waste disposal cost per citizen.
