Yamap in Fukuoka City developed a “clothes to clothes” recycling system for climbers in collaboration with an apparel recycling brand, Bring. Instead of selling outdoor clothing, Yamap rents mountain gear to climbers to be reused to produce new fabric items. The eco-conscious project also aims to tackle the troubles of owning expensive equipment for infrequent climbings and inventory control problems at shops. Source: Yamap / PR Times
