Start whatever we can do for the earth and children


We can save some lives by collecting PET bottle caps.
Each year, many children in the world lose their lives due to the lack of vaccines.
Please bring PET bottle caps to Daimaru and Matsuzakaya stores near you and put them in PET bottle cap collection boxes there.
The collected PET bottle caps are sent to recycling companies through the NPO “Re Lifestyle” and we donate the full amount paid for them to the authorized NPO “Japan Committee Vaccines for World’s Children (JCV)” to fund vaccines for children around the world.
