 Support Activities for Plastics Education

  In partnership with Japan Chemical Industry Association, the Japan Plastics Industry Federation and Plastic waste management Institute, VEC has worked for education activities by launching Liaison Committee on Plastic Education.

  As the first event of this year, under the sponsorship of Tokyo Junior High School Science Education Meeting for the Study and Shinagawa-city Education Society, we, as cooperators, joined the plant tour of Asahi Kasei Chemicals Corporation and Toyo Seikan Co., Ltd. (can manufacturing). This was the first challenge, however, 25 teachers, full of the number of persons to be admitted to the event, joined the tour. Then, on 7th and 8th of August, All Japan Junior High School Society for Science Education (in Shimane prefecture) was held, and around 600 teachers gathered. At our booth built in the gathering, we introduced a delivery class on plastics held by VEC. Also, we handed out the brochures of the member companies of the four organizations.

  We continuously conduct such activities throughout the nation to inform the merits of plastics and PVC.
