We distributed bagasse containers that consider marine litter to day camp participants!
With the cooperation of Orikane Co., Ltd., bagasse containers and cutlery (spoons and forks) that are friendly to marine litter were distributed to day camp participants. Bagasse is the stalks and leaves of sugarcane that are left after squeezing the sugar juice necessary for sugar production. Sugar cane grows quickly and is harvested in one to one and a half years. About 1.2 billion tons are produced annually, and about 100 million tons of bagasse are generated.
Bagasse is used as fuel for boilers, but the surplus is discarded, and in recent years it has been effectively used as a raw material for disposable food containers.
Through the bagasse container, we were able to see how the
participants’ awareness of marine litter improved.
There is also a program where you can learn the rules for separating garbage while playing games!
At the same booth, a program was held to learn the rules for sorting garbage using the puzzle game “Puyo Puyo eSports.” In addition, the program “MY FOOTBALL KIT” was also implemented with the aim of learning and experiencing the appeal of sports through football. “MY FOOTBALL KIT” is a program that contributes to “high-quality education” and “responsibility to create and use” with the aim of cultivating rich thinking in children.
The participants were all smiles!
“I learned that cleaning the city leads to cleaning the sea!” “I will tell my homeroom teacher what I learned!”
“I enjoyed learning!”
“I want to participate in activities to clean the sea!”
I was able to hear a lot of voices like this.

CHANGE FOR THE BLUE
In 2018, as part of the Nippon Foundation’s “Umi to Nihon Project”, the goal is to raise the awareness of society as a whole that “no more litter will be thrown into the sea” by making the problem of marine litter a personal matter for each and every citizen. This project has been underway since November 2011.
We will collaborate with stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and citizens to create a marine litter reduction model and disseminate it both domestically and internationally.
