~ A little eco-friendly choice that you can do every day ~
HAYAMI grass straw
We will build a sustainable society by continuing to provide the world with a little eco-friendly choices that we can make today.
Marine plastic problem
Around the world, 8 million tons of plastic flow into the ocean each year. These plastics take 100-200 years to break down.
By 2050, the amount of microplastics in the ocean will exceed that of fish. In fact, more than 100 million marine life is dead from plastic waste. Furthermore, in 2018, it was reported that microplastics were also detected in the human body, which eats marine organisms containing microplastics in their bodies.
This is the second highest per capita consumption of disposable plastics after the United States.
It is not another person's affairs for Japan, which is the second largest in the world. However, domestic laws and regulations are inadequate, and the reality is that people's interest in sustainability is lower than in Western countries.
Therefore, we started the grass straw project as the first step to reduce marine plastics and maintain a clean sea and the earth.
We believe that each and every one of our daily, slightly eco-friendly choices will make a big difference.
We hope that we can provide as many people as possible with an opportunity to think about sustainability through grass straws.
