Packaging made from recycled plastic waste
Circular use of plastic resources is needed for realizing a sustainable society.
To that end, Mizuno has started to use a material made from recycled waste plastic film and used PET bottle caps as the packaging for some sports apparel products made in Japan, in collaboration with TBM Co., Ltd. The shift will be steadily promoted from June 2022 and Mizuno intends to achieve a switch to this recycled packaging material for approximately 1.04 million apparel products annually.
For such product packaging, approximately 98% of the material will be based on recycled one. This is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 29.6 tons annually.
Mizuno aims to become carbon neutral by 2050 and is committed to implementing measures to reduce environmental impact and to ensuring a better future for the environment and for sports lovers.
