Heart-pounding! Picking up GOMI
Heart-pounding! About picking up GOMI
GOMI pick up” is an event that defines “a little bit of goodness for the earth and people” as “heart-pounding!” The purpose of the Ishintai UNESCO Club, which is involved in educational projects, is not only to collect litter scattered on the road, but also to create opportunities for many people to talk to each other and pick up litter at the same time. I believe that this will lead to the creation of people who care about the environment. We started this initiative in 2012, thinking that even if the power of each person is small, we can gradually increase compassion by gathering many people and repeating the number of times.

・1,668 kg of non-burnable garbage
