Environmental study with local residents

Environmental study with children

The Shiseido Kakegawa Factory (Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture) holds environmental learning sessions for local elementary school students every year. In 2019, 20 children from Kakegawa participated in the sessions. We introduced eco-friendly packages and waste reduction initiatives and learned about the problem of ocean plastics. Everyone checked small pieces of plastic collected from the beach by employees and made kaleidoscopes. The Shiseido Kakegawa Factory continues to provide environmental education in cooperation with the community.

Environmental study in the roof garden at the Ginza Office

The Ginza Office (Chuo-ku, Tokyo) has a rooftop “Shisei Garden” created with biodiversity conservation in mind. We hold environmental learning sessions for local residents in the garden. In October 2016, we invited 29 children to take part in a workshop in which they observed the plants in the roof garden and squeezed oil from Camellia, a cosmetics ingredient.
