Appeal to join "Team minus 6%" at The "Pick up, and You will Love Your City" Campaign presented by JT

April 27, 2006

As a member company of "Team minus 6%," a national campaign for global warming prevention, Japan Tobacco (JT) will launch a new project to appeal the participants in The "Pick up, and You will Love Your City" Campaign which is a citizen participation cleaning project taking place all over
the country to take part in "Team minus 6%" as well.

"Team minus 6%" is suggesting to "reduce CO2 by shopping and garbage (refuse excessive packaging/more use of Furoshiki and My Bag)" as one of the solutions to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emission.

Now, the participants in the activity are expected to develop their awareness of "not to litter garbage" for environmental beautification of town into that of "not to make garbage" for the reduction of CO2 emission.

This project will take place at more than 100 places all over the country, starting with "The 45th Hakata Dontaku Port Festival" and "The 30th Hiroshima Flower Festival" during the golden week.
