Jonetsu Kakaku  Sustainable Sneakers.

Jonetsu Kakaku, which develops products based on the concept of a "people brand" created together with customers, sells canvas shoes made from recycled plastic bottles.

Each pair of shoes uses about 4 to 5 plastic bottles, making it a product which contributes to the reduction of marine litter, which has become a social problem in recent years, as well as to the realization of a recycling-oriented society which makes effective use of resources.

The outer box is also made of recycled pulp, in order to be environmentally friendly. Storefront POPs explaining the product also emphasize that the product is made of recycled materials which contribute to solving the SDGs' issues. These products are popular among customers of an ethically conscious generation, and who are interested in environmental issues.

【Toilet paper made from recycled milk cartons 】

Environmentally-friendly toilet paper made from 100% recycled paper. We use milk cartons collected at the store as part of the raw materials. The polyethylene that coats the milk cartons is reused for heat energy within the factory.

【Organic cotton series】

The yarn is made of organic Indian cotton, carefully harvested by hand and finished in a local factory to produce less fluff and more luster.

【Medicated foaming hand soap that is both human and environmentally friendly】

This hand soap is made through the collection and refining of used frying oil from the kitchens of restaurants and retail stores. Since it is a vegetable oil, it is gentle on hands and skin, as well as on rivers and oceans.

【Butter rolls with margarine (container packaged)】

The weight of containers and packaging has been reduced by about 30% by discontinuing the use of clasps, and making bags more compact than conventional packaging forms.

Development of off-price business

  • 12 RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION
  • 17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS

In recent years, it has been said that we live in an age of surplus. With the surplus inventory of famous apparel brands increasing, this results in most of these brands resorting to incineration or exportation to dispose of the surplus, which has become a major social problem. On the other hand, overseas, "off-price stores" that buy such inventory and resell it at greatly reduced prices are gaining popularity, changing the environment surrounding excess inventory that used to go to waste. The PPIH Group, noticing that the shopping style ("treasure hunting") of our discount business has a high affinity with off-price store consumption, purchases products directly from Japan and overseas, offers them below market prices, and contributes to the sale of ethical products that do not waste excess inventory, by selling every last item.

Satoumi Project

In addition to providing safe and secure products to our customers, PPIH also focuses on developing ethical products that are environmentally friendly.

PPIH has started to support the "Satoumi Project", promoted by the Hinase Fishermen's Cooperative Association and Tokai Starch Group with the aim of supporting the production of cultivated oysters in Okayama Prefecture's Hinase production as "sustainable one-year oysters".
In order to not overcrowd the Oysters cultivated by Hinase Fisheries, the number of rafts in the fishing grounds and the distance between rafts are strictly controlled. We have also created an optimal environment for Oyster production by regenerating the seaweed beds that purify the sea and provide hiding places for small fish.
Additionally, at the end of the cultivation period, all the rafts are removed and the seabed is cleaned in order to reset the ocean and create a new cycle for producing oysters for another year.

This product will be sold at MEGA stores and some Don Quijote stores which sell food products from the PPIH Group, and for every pack sold, \1 will be donated to Hinase Fisheries for cleaning the seabed.
Through these planned products, we will provide safe and secure products to our customers and contribute to protecting the abundance of the oceans under the SDGs through partnerships, thereby realizing the provision of sustainable products.

Provision of Farm-Raised Fish

Fresh, high quality seafood is popular in the group's DON DON DONKI stores across other Asian countries. Among these are some of our top-selling farm purchased marine products, such as Bluefin Tuna, Salmon, Sea Bream, Yellowtail, and Amberjack. Purchasing farmed fish helps to prevent the excessive use of natural resources through overfishing, thus ensuring a stable supply of products at reasonable prices. It also removes the fear associated with events such as natural disasters. These products aren't only sold in DON DON DONKI stores, but also in stores which provide domestic fresh fish at the same time as promoting the consumption of ethical products, as a part of the PPIH Group.
