Sustainability at MUJI
Raw Material Procurement
The tools and clothing that we see around us were first developed when humans evolved to bipedalism and when they used objects in the natural world with ingenuity to protect themselves from harsh natural conditions and beasts. We have been ensuring safety and convenience by utilizing animals and plants as raw materials and forming them into clothes to wear and utensils for eating. Natural materials such as cotton, linen, and wool that have supported our lives since then have functions of helping humans who have lived in contact with nature.
Following in the steps of our ancestors, MUJI promotes manufacturing that makes the best use of the original functions of these natural materials. We are working to select raw materials that are collected and cultivated in a way that does not impose an excessive burden on the earth, animals and plants, and producers.
Moreover, as the primary raw materials, we use those that can be traced back to the production area as much as possible, and above all, we actually visit the production areas to check with our own eyes the conditions of collection/cultivation sites of major raw materials and the lives of producers.
We will continue to strive to procure raw materials in consideration of those who use them, those who make them, and approaches to engaging with nature.
Manufacturing that benefits both the environment and society
With the goal of sustainable cotton production that benefits both the environment and the producers, MUJI has taken initiatives to increase the ratio of our products that use organic cotton for more than 20 years.
We want to spread the practice of growing organic cotton which benefits both the environment and its producers. To achieve that dream, we will donate 2 organic cotton seeds to producers in India for every T-shirt that we sell.
Jute My Bag
A natural material harvested from India, jute is an environmentally friendly and fast growing plant that absorbs a great deal of carbon dioxide
Aroma from Nature
MUJI's 100% pure essential oil comes from fruits and plants carefully selected world-wide. Used with our essential oil diffusers, they allow you to experience the waft of the natural bouquet.
As for animal-derived raw materials, we inspect the processes from the perspective of animal welfare.
For down, we use only the feathers reviewed and certified by a third-party organization to ensure five freedoms of animal welfare* in the breeding environment and to ensure that the material does not come from birds that have been subjected to any unnecessary harm such as force-feeding or live-plucking. We select raw materials by considering not only their functionality but also those who use them, those who make them, and approaches to engaging with nature.
* The five freedoms of animal welfare are as follows: (1) freedom from hunger and thirst; (2) freedom from fear and distress; (3) freedom from discomfort; (4) freedom from pain, injury, or disease; and (5) freedom to express normal behavior (source: Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, "Livestock breeding management with consideration of animal welfare")
MUJI PP Dust Boxes
Garbage serves no purpose. Waste, on the other hand, has value and needs to be properly sorted in order to be recycled into other usable products.
At MUJI, we want to encourage everyone to join us in waste-sorting at home or at work. Let us put in more effort into separating our food waste, paper, plastic, and glass into different bins rather than throwing everything into one. With that philosophy in mind, we have created sticker labels to help you create a waste-sorting station with our PP dust boxes.
Through our joint effort, we will begin to see a change for the better in our world.
