On March 29, the use of new shopping bags began at Haneda Airport.
This bag, called the "Bio LIMEX Bag," is made of limestone and plant-based resin as the main raw materials, and a new material "LIMEX" that can substitute for paper and plastic.
By switching from the conventional plastic shopping bag, the amount of petroleum-derived plastic used was about 462 tons per year, and the carbon dioxide emission (*1) was about 1,114 tons (absorption of 126,568 cedar trees per year). It is expected to be reduced*2). This is Japan's first introduction to the airport.
The Bio LIMEX Bag has a track record of being adopted as a product operated by the G20 Osaka Summit held last year amid the growing trend of plastic regulations around the world.
Currently, more than 500 inquiries have been received from all over the world, including the introduction to SoftBank shops and museum shops at the Mori Art Museum. Great attention is being paid to its high environmental performance.
