The Japanese make an eloquent Eco Mark

The Japanese Eco Mark Program, founded in 1989, is operated by the Japan Environment Association (JEA).

This Eco Mark applies to products and their life cycles.

The scheme was modeled after the Blue Angel, the environmental protection label of (what was then West) Germany.

The public were invited to submit designs in 1998 from which some were nominated for the Chief of Environment Agency Award, and this one selected.

The Japanese – at least in translation – provide one of the most eloquent and far-reaching descriptions of the impact of environmental concerns.

We must reconsider our social system as well as our lifestyle to solve these environmental issues, then to bequeath beautiful environment and valuable resources to subsequent generation. Also it is necessary to develop the infrastructure by considering environmental-friendliness.
