Tokyo -The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has donated a total of 1,334,850 yen (Euro 9000) to World Wild Fund for Nature Japan (WWF-J). The money was collected in the form of admission fees and donations during a charity music event called "LIVE ecoMOTION" in Shibuya Tokyo on July 2. It was the second such event, following a similar one last year. The proceeds and contributions will be used by WWF Japan for activities aimed at combating global warming, including reducing CO2 emissions.
LIVE ecoMOTION" was a "one coin" charity event - 500-yen admission (Euro 4) - staged by employees of Yokohama Rubber, under the theme "Let's enjoy ourselves and think together about eco-friendly activities." This year, agreeing with the objectives of the event, four artists performed without being paid, drawing over 1800 spectators. About 40 employees of the company worked as volunteers, picking up litter around the hall, staffing the reception desk, seeking and collecting additional monetary contributions, and passing out flower seeds as mementos. In the end, all participants were united around the single thought of putting an end to global warming.
