Mandom Group's CSR KohDoh Practices
Reduce: Containers, Packaging, etc.
3R Examples: Reducing Use of Materials (Containers, Packaging, etc.)
Inner Box Reduction/Elimination
We have eliminated the inner boxes on many of our paper-related products, new products, and series products. This effort has vastly reduced the amount of paper in use.
We are working to eliminate inner boxes while paying attention to quality assurance, productivity, cost reduction, and easing environmental impact.
Without inner boxes: packaging specs changed to use cardboard box partitions
Plastic Packaging Reduction
For some products, we switched from using a plastic cover to a film wrap, thereby reducing the amount of plastic used per product.
Eliminating shrink wrap
While maintaining safety and security for customers we are reducing the use of shrink wrap on certain products.
Examples of reduced shrink wrap
A tamper-evident seal is used in place of shrink wrap.
Reduced Resin Use in Containers
With the renewal of our Lucido-L hair wax line, we redesigned the container to achieve about a 30% reduction in resin.
We also reduced the amount of resin used in our bottle packaging of Bifesta Water Cleansing Series by 8 grams per item, achieving a significant overall reduction in plastic usage.
Reductions in Formula Development (lower environmental impact of contents)
We use ingredients in formulating our products that are entirely safe for people. Also, as part of 3R design, we develop formulations that have the least impact on the environment.
