Mizuno will switch to shoe boxes made of 100% recycled paper
Mizuno will switch to shoe boxes made of 100% recycled paper starting in January 2021 as part of its sustainability activities. The switch will be applied to all categories of shoes worldwide, and is expected to reduce CO₂ emissions by 160 tons per year compared to conventional shoe boxes.
From 2021 Mizuno has been focusing on three key areas of sustainability: Environmental Conservation, Physical and Mental Health through Sport, and Respect for Humanity. In particular, in the area of environmental conservation, Mizuno is committed to become Carbon Neutral by 2050.
By using 100% recycled paper for the packaging of shoes, one of Mizuno's key product categories, Mizuno will contribute to reducing environmental impact and building a sustainable society.
