The Yokohama reuse bin project is to produce reusable glass bottles in Yokohama produced by Yokohama City Resource Recycling Business Cooperative. The project conceives the regional circle of the bottles and the local consumption of the juice so as to help the environment and the local communities.
As a part of the project, they offer “a delivery lecture” program to teach about the project and local consumption at elementary schools in Yokohama.
As well as the glass bottles, they produce Yokohama limited edition beverages with local fruit farmers. The juice is sold at some restaurants in Yokohama.
Reusable glass bottles are collected and reused as brand-new bottles after being rinsed. Why are reusable glass bottles environmentally friendly? It is because they reduce the environmental effect and encourage local consumption.
