Region/Society

Sponsorship of Ocean’s Love

Since 2012, MAMA BUTTER is a official sponsor for Non Profit Organization “Ocean’s Love”, being inspired by its vision to create the field of social understanding and communication for children with disabilities using the power of nature, in this case, ocean and waves. Part of the profit from “UV Care Lip Treatment” is donated to “Ocean’s Love” activities.

Supporting Africa with shea butter

The fair trade created by the production of shea butter used in MAMA BUTTER, supports women in Africa with sustainable job. Their stable job create better lives and education for children and this promotes development of the society. We also promote using machines in what used to be all hand production for a better work environment where water and energy supplies are stable.

Supporting agriculture in Japan

BbyE uses Japan made materials to promote traceability and local production. Ingredients with a visibility of the producer does not only provide safety but adds another value to ingredients themselves and this helps promote agriculture all over Japan. rinRen uses the skin of Yuzu that are otherwise to be wasted, and NEROLILA Botanica uses oranges to promote revitalizing the abandoned land, medel uses rice to promote domestic production that decreases each year. These are one of the examples of the activities that we believe in to create sustainable society for nature and human living in harmony.

Supporting quality literacy education for children in Asia

Under its vision that “Education of children can change the world”, International NGO “room to read” focuses on eliminating the gender difference in the education of literacy for children, spreading its activities over 10 countries in Asia and Africa. We support “room to read” activities to promote school and library construction by our donation since 2013.

Donation to institute for children with intellectual disabilities.

Sumire-en is an institute where nearly 30 boys and girls live together. They go do school, engage in various daily activities together to grow with the experience to become an independent adult not disadvantaged by their disabilities. We donate our product to Sumire-en.

Environment

Supporting Japanese Agriculture

Part of the profit of rinRen is donated to a NPO Environmental Relations, that works on plantation activities with its theme “make our earth a forest in the future!” and to involve as many people as possible into this eco friendly action. This project called “present tree” needs support not only in planting the trees but also for all the activities needed to keep them healthy after plantation. We would like to give as much support as possible to their activities through our donation to promote forestation and environmental protection.
