Concerned about its environmental footprint, Tokyo Smart has decided to improve its eco-responsible approach by participating in reforestation projects.
Tokyo Smart will support several associations through the organization Plant for the Planet and the Trillion Tree Campaign project, supported by the United Nations and UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), which aims to plant 1000 billion trees. To date, more than 13 billion trees have already been planted in 193 different countries.

Tokyo Smart has chosen PhpNet.org to host its website in order to provide its website with clean energy. The electricity that supplies the servers comes from hydroelectric, photovoltaic and wind power plants. PhpNet also uses a Free Cooling system to cool servers by optimizing the use of outdoor air.
By choosing green hosting, Tokyo Smart participates in the development of new ecological technics for energy production.
All the products available on Tokyo Smart come from Japan, we promote local craftsmanship rather than massive automated production from countries not concerned about environmental rules. Our short supply chain, directly from the craftsmen, makes possible to limit the transport generated by intermediaries, while allowing fair prices.
Tokyo Smart only uses recycled paper cardboard and reuses cardboard from its suppliers, without compromising on protection. Newsprint is used when appropriate, or air bags to limit the weight of the packages and thus limit the energy consumption during transport. Depending on the size of the packaged products, we choose the appropriate cardboard box in order to limit the empty space as much as possible.
The Tokyo Smart team is constantly thinking about improving its carbon footprint and is listening to any new idea, feel free to contact us to discuss about it.
