Daimaru to Pass on Money from Shopping Bag Sales to Support Marine Preservation

The department store Daimaru Fukuoka Tenjin partnered with Fukuoka City to use the sales of plastic bags (‘reji-bukuro’) to support preservation of the region’s marine environment. In response to the banning of distribution of free plastic bags at retail stores as of July 1, Daimaru proposed the contribution scheme to support Fukuoka City’s environmental activities such as seabed cleaning at Hakata Bay. The mayor of the city, Soichiro Takashima, hopes this local move will spread across the nation. Source: NHK
