■Social issues that WALLTECH is tackling and the society we want to realize

Approximately 1,000 tons of agricultural plastic greenhouses and other materials are discarded every year in Okinawa, some of which is incinerated or landfilled. Additionally, many clothing items are manufactured using multiple types of fibers, making them difficult to recycle even with current technology, and issues such as being incinerated or landfilled remain. By providing textile panels and art walls made by upcycling discarded clothing, agricultural films, etc., WALLTECH realizes local circulation of waste resources using art and technology, benefiting both the earth and people. We aim to create a kind and comfortable society.
