Coaster (CWC)” service launched
*Efforts to implement a circular economy in society that does not assume disposal*
With the vision of “reorganizing the connection between people and forests,” iForest Co., Ltd.*¹ (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and CEO Takaaki Maruyama;
iforest)’s core technology is “new materials made from 100% food waste.” fabula Co., Ltd.*² (Headquarters: Ota-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director and CEO Machida
“Coffee Changing The
GOOD COFFEE FARMS Co., Ltd. *³ (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director Carlos Melen, hereinafter GOOD
COFFEE
FARMS), the world’s first resource recycling coaster “Circuler” is made using “wood chips” from a sawmill and processing plant in Hinohara Village, Tokyo, and “coffee grounds” from coffee extraction. We will start the “Waste Coaster” (hereinafter referred to as “CWC”) service.

*About the background of CWC service development*
In Hinohara Village, Tokyo, forestry-related businesses such as sawmills and wood processing plants (hereinafter referred to as Approximately 100 tons of wood waste is generated by business operators every year, and much of it is disposed of as industrial waste for a fee, placing a heavy burden on management.
Therefore, iforest has developed CWC, a naturally-derived coaster that does not use chemicals, by purchasing, collecting, and drying wood chips and coffee grounds from these businesses for a fee, and then compressing and molding them. By doing so, we hope to not only reduce wood waste in the village, but also support sustainable management as a new source of income for businesses.
*About cooperation with GOOD COFFEE FARMS*
In addition to working together as a material supplier for “coffee grounds,” as the first store to introduce the CWC service, we plan to have them cooperate in installing POPs to introduce CWC service initiatives within the store.
*About circular economy (CE) supply chain*
The biggest feature of CWC, a resource recycling coaster that is not intended for disposal, is that coasters that are damaged or
deteriorated and become unusable after being used several dozen times can be recollected, repulverized, and remolded through the
collaboration of iforest and fabula. By doing so, you can transform it into a new CWC coaster. In the future, we will widely disseminate information to society through our company website, social media, etc. about the supply chain system that achieves sustainable economic activities without placing an excessive burden on the global environment by circulating resources efficiently without wasting resources. As we move forward, we will increase the number of locations where CWC is introduced, mainly in Tokyo, in order to create opportunities for more people to use CWC and to gain even the slightest interest in environmental issues and issues in the forestry field.
*About CWC introduction plan*
CWC service offers two implementation plans. Please feel free to contact us if you are a restaurant currently using paper coasters, a company, or a local government that is interested in CWC services. * About CWC service overview *
