Cummins Japan Help Conserve Miyake Island
Cummins Japan Limited held their annual beach cleaning day at Funabashi Sanbanse in Tokyo bay, with 23 employees and their families joining together to spend a day in the sunshine picking up rubbish and cleaning the general beach area.
There was a large city event a week before the clean up, so it is safe to say that the team had a lot to pick up! The rubbish main collected included bottles, cans, plastic and cigarette butts. A big thank you to Cummins Japan for helping keep our beaches and oceans rubbish free!
Cummins Japan continued their environmental conservation efforts by holding a tree planting and clean up event in Miyake-Island on the 7th -8th July 2018.
Miyake-Island is one of the southern islands in Tokyo. There was a volcano eruption on the island during 2000, whereby most of trees were destroyed. Since then, some activities to reconstruct the island from the disaster have been started. Cummins Japan decided to contribute to the restoration activities by holding a tree planting day.
The tree planting activity is supported by the NPO Green Earth Centre in Tokyo, and this is the seventh year that Cummins Japan has participated. On the 1st day, the team of 16 employees planted 1,500 trees, which is an outstanding effort as usually, the team plant about 500 trees per 20 or 30 people! On the 2nd day, the team held beach clean-up event, whereby they collected about 5 kg of garbage.
Cummins Japan will continue to work on conservation to re-establish Miyake Island to the beautiful green it once was. Well done to the Cummins Japan Team!
