1. The reason for posting the video on our website

Gunze plastic films have been finding steadily increasing applications closely related to everyday life. For example, Gunze’s shrink film “Fancywrap®“ is used for beverage bottles as well as packaging for food, home and personal care items, while our anti-fogging film is suitable for wrapping mushrooms, bean sprouts, and other fresh produce. Particularly, the shrink film used for beverage bottles maintains a very high share of the Japanese market. In addition to providing the utility of packaging and wrapping, Gunze strives to develop films that are easy to open and peel off, and which build sustainability of the environment through Gunze’s cutting-edge technology. In this way, Gunze is committed to producing film products that provide comfort to the Earth and its people.

Apart from the idea of zero plastic society, Gunze has posted the video to seek the companies who can agree with us by clearly stating our policy of achieving a world of zero plastic waste by utilizing the functions of plastics and circulating them.
