Efforts to Recycle Resourced within 2km in Radius



Executive Director, Leader Training (Domestic/International), The Jun-namaken FUKUOKA

Spreading the composting technology with a history of 50 years to Asia

Sustainable Life Laboratory researches and diffuses technologies that help to achieve affluent and creative lives with a resource-circulating system in a local community.

We establish composting technologies including the one called cardboard box composting that can compost organic waste such as kitchen waste, fallen leaves, lawn waste and seaweed without using electricity, and we spread our technologies over Asian countries by educating people.

Our goal is forming a whole circulating process from composting to retailing within an area of 2km in radius, so we practice unique activities. For example, we arrange a variety of lectures for kindergarteners, students and citizens and organize courses entitled "The Half-farmer Urban People" to educate part-time food producers.

Through our activities, we feel that it is essential to improve our programs and projects more in order to suggest best practice for each community in Asia region.

We hope to increase the number of people who enjoy their lives with a healthy cycle of organic matters, have safe and tasty vegetables and receive eco-friendly education.
