Meguri® Story

The Background to Meguri®

Plastic that enriches
people’s lives

Plastics, such as the lightweight and highly workable polyolefin, are used widely in areas including packaging, automobiles, and electronic materials, and are an essential part of our daily lives of abundance.
On the other hand, society faces a range of plastic-related issues including waste problems such as disposal of plastic and plastic pollution in the oceans, and CO2 emissions resulting from using our finite supply of oil for raw materials.

This is why we launched the future-focused Meguri® brand, and begin to work to reduce the environmental impact of plastic.

Plastics used  in food packaging, automobiles, shoe sole. and Consumer goods packaging.
