[Eco-friendly activities just by wearing] Achieving “carbon neutral” and “plastic-free” with masks that consider environmental issues. Started selling sustainable masks at campaign prices.
The first campaign to protect the earth for Twitter followers and official website members

Samurai Works Co., Ltd. (President: Minoru Niijima, Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) will start a campaign for followers and members from the sustainable mask brand ECOthical Mask.
Currently, a large amount of masks, which have been used more frequently due to the new corona wreck, are being disposed of, and the increase in mask and plastic waste has a major impact on the global environment.
We will seriously face what we can do to prevent the spread of garbage while preventing infection.
By using eco-friendly materials as much as possible, reducing the amount of waste, and reducing the burden on the environment, our efforts will help solve global environmental problems through “people-friendly and earth-friendly masks.” I hope this is the first step towards a solution.

Through the “PROTECT THE BLUE OCEAN AND BLUE SKIES” project, we are engaged in activities related to the global environment, such as “reducing carbon dioxide emissions” and “improving marine plastic problems” in order to protect the blue sea and blue sky. Do it positively.
Currently, the new corona wreck has produced a large amount of masks that have increased the frequency of use, and the increase in discarded masks = plastic waste has a great impact on the global environment. We are facing this problem to control the spread of infection and prevent waste from flowing out. To reduce the burden on the environment by using environmentally friendly materials as much as possible.
We hope that our efforts will be the first step toward solving global environmental problems through “people-friendly and earth-friendly masks.”
Environmentally friendly non-woven fabric mask “ECOthical Mask” [Image 3

The environmentally friendly eco mask “ECOthical Mask” uses 99% PLA resin (polylactic acid), which is quickly biodegradable and easily returned to nature, as the material of the non-woven fabric. Non-woven fabrics made of PLA resin (polylactic acid) reduce carbon dioxide emissions during manufacturing and disposal, reducing the risk of global warming. We aim to reduce the burden on the environment by building a cycle in which biodegradable masks return to the earth and create new nature. “Preventing infection while preventing waste from flowing out.” We are working to protect the global environment through masks that have a low environmental impact and can be returned to the soil in a short period of time.

■Currently, due to the rapid increase in demand for masks,
environmental problems related to “mask garbage” are becoming more serious.
With the spread of the new coronavirus, masks have become worn almost every day. The main materials of non-woven masks include “polyester, polyurethane, polyethylene”, etc., but these are all plastics. Along with the increase in wearing opportunities, masks and plastic waste are increasing rapidly.
It is estimated that 129 billion masks are produced globally each month, of which about 3% end up in the ocean.
A huge number of 3,870 million masks are floating in the sea over a long period of time without being completely decomposed in the natural world, which has an impact on the natural environment and ecosystems. I am giving
We will face this serious environmental problem.

■ Masks are “marine plastic waste” that affect the ecosystem It is said that a typical disposable mask takes about 450 years to decompose naturally. It affects the environment and ecosystems. The amount of plastic used worldwide has increased about 20-fold over the past half century, and it is reported that if plastic waste continues to increase at the current rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. increase. Marine pollution from plastic waste is a real crisis.
■Japan is committed to carbon neutrality by 2050.
Japan is the fifth largest emitter of CO2 in the world. 1.1 Gt (1,149 million tons), petroleum-based plastics are used about 10.3 million tons.
Approximately 24% of this is considered to be emissions from the industrial sector.
Meanwhile, CO2 emissions continue to increase significantly due to the use of masks, which are mostly made of plastic.
From the perspective of manufacturing and incineration, ECOthical Mask aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 by significantly cutting CO2 emissions compared to general non-woven fabrics.

■Ingredients derived from plants. We use non-woven fabric that decomposes naturally.
ECOthical Mask, an eco-friendly material that reduces Co2 emissions. The plant-derived material, which is the main raw material for the ECOthical Mask, is a combination of both [biodegradable plastic] that can be decomposed by microorganisms and renewable organic resources [biomass plastic]. It is a PLA resin (polylactic acid) that has both properties. It has the same strength as ordinary plastic, and after use is decomposed into water and carbon dioxide by microorganisms in an appropriate environment.

Safe gentleness for sensitive skin ECOthical Mask, which uses plant-derived non-woven fabric, is a mask that is gentle on the skin. The pH balance of human skin is “weakly acidic”, which is a little more acidic than neutral. By using a weakly acidic material that is close to the skin, irritation to the skin is reduced. Safe to use even for those with sensitive skin.

■ Natural bacteriostatic and antibacterial properties that suppress the growth of bacteria
Plant-derived PLA resin (polylactic acid) has natural antibacterial and antibacterial properties. Comparative tests with general non-woven fabrics have proven the extremely high bacteriostatic and
antibacterial properties of PLA resin (polylactic acid).
By “suppressing the growth of bacteria”, it is possible to keep the environment inside the mask clean and create a more skin-friendly environment.
