In addition, we will also start a green donation program in which all Prairie Card users can participate. We will continue to promote actions for environmental protection.
Background of selling wood material digital business card

Japan consumes 10 billion business cards annually, and is said to be the world’s largest consumer of business cards. According to a specialized research company, it has been found that approximately 3g of CO2 is emitted every time one paper business card is consumed. Prairie Card has realized the exchange of business cards without wasting paper resources by providing digital business cards that do not get thrown away. In the 10 months since the service was released, it has been used over 200,000 times, and we have saved more than 200,000 paper business cards. Additionally, we have been working to reduce our environmental impact by using FSC-certified paper for the envelopes we use to deliver our products.

This time, in order to further promote environmentally friendly actions, we have developed Japan’s first* digital business card made from wood. In the future, we will proceed with development with a view to reusing domestic thinned wood.

At the same time, we will start a “Green Donation Program” based on the number of times the digital business card “Prairie Card” is used. Every time a user who has announced their participation uses their Prairie Card, they will receive 1 yen from More, a general
incorporated association that carries out forestation conservation activities in Japan.
We will donate to the trees.
*…In-house research: First among companies providing digital business cards in Japan
*…FSC certified paper: Paper made from wood produced from properly managed forests, with the aim of sustaining forest resources into the future.

Points for providing wood material digital business cards
1. *For companies that want to be environmentally friendly* Due to growing interest in SDGs and ESG, the number of inquiries to our company for the purpose of being environmentally friendly is increasing. We will not only avoid wasting paper business cards, but we will also provide products that are particular about the
environment in which the business cards themselves are made. 2. *For young people who are interested in ethical consumption* Many Prairie Card users are oriented towards ethical consumption and want to use environmentally friendly products. We developed this product based on the voices of users. We will create digital business cards that will be chosen as ethical consumption continues to spread, especially among Generation Z.
3. *New design lineup based on wood grain*
In addition to the regular lineup, the woodgrain design is soft to the touch and warm to the touch. You will have more options to express your individuality when you meet someone.
