To be a company which can contribute to the local community, we carry out various activities and programs.
Original Eco-friendly Bags
We produce original eco-friendly bags, which we donate to a working institution for handicapped people so that they could find an opportunity to work. After processing the bags, they could sell them for fund raising.
We hope we can contribute to the welfare for the disabled in the community and also to the protection of the environment by producing these bags.
We have work-study programs for local junior high school students. In these programs, they experience the work of transportation, and learn about our CSR activities. We hope they will start to acquire their own career values and work attitudes through these activities.
Local Beautification Activities
We participate in the program called “Oguchi-cho Adopt Program”. In this program we take very good care of a certain street of Oguchi-cho, where our Komaki branch is located, as if we had adopted that street.
We also take part in the program called “Seto Marutto Gomi-Zero Program”. Every week all members of the head office clean up the streets around the office in Seto.
Reducing the Production of Waste
We accept customers’ household goods and belongings which are no longer needed in Japan. We export those goods to the Philippines for reuse while other movers just dispose them as wastes. We reduce the quantity of wastes and try to protect the environment by making full use of those goods around us.
We have a small farm named “Ohashi Farm” in the premise of the head office. Volunteers grow vegetables without using any pesticides. We raise our awareness of “local production for local consumption” and “in-season consumption” by harvesting and enjoying the fresh vegetables.
Protecting Japanese Salamanders
Seto city, where our head office is located, is a habitat of Japanese giant salamander which is designated as a special natural treasure of Japan. To protect the national treasure and to preserve the beautiful Satoyama, the village-vicinity mountain, for the children of the future, we diligently clean the river where the salamanders live and maintain the artificial nesting hole.
Collecting Pet Bottle Caps
We collect pet bottle caps to give the disabled of the local community the opportunity to work, and to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions. With the profit of the sales of the caps, we buy the working gloves made in the local welfare facility for the disabled, then we donate the gloves to the local environmental organizations.
Many local elementary schools and junior high schools collect pet bottle caps, but they don’t have any ways to deliver them to the charity institutions. We go to their places by truck to collect the caps for free.
Donation for the Children of the Philippines
Through the operations of the moving service or cleaning and organizing service, our customers give us the used clothes, shoes, articles of stationery. Many employees and the people of the local community also bring those to our office. We send them in our exporting containers to help the Filipino children in special need.
