About White Logistics
Toyoshima & Co., Ltd. endorsed the "White Logistics" promotion campaign advocated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and submitted a "Declaration of Voluntary Action" in September 2019 to realize sustainable logistics. We are promoting initiatives to improve productivity and logistics efficiency.
What is the "White Logistics" Promotion Movement?
The movement aims to address the worsening shortage of drivers, stably secure the logistics necessary for daily life and industrial activities, and contribute to economic growth. Through improving productivity and streamlining logistics in truck transportation, we are working to realize an environment-friendly and people-friendly logistics system.
Voluntary action declaration contents
- 1. Logistics improvement proposals and cooperation
- 2. Advance provision of shipping and receiving information, etc. from the consignor
- 3. Aggregation of delivery dates
- 4. Suspension, interruption, etc. of operation during abnormal weather, etc.
- 5. Joint delivery
As part of our logistics reforms, we are conducting "joint delivery" between trading companies for some products delivered from the Bay Port (Tokyo Bay) to the Kanto area (starting in 2022). Through cooperation that transcends the boundaries of each company, we are working to solve issues such as alleviating traffic congestion by reducing the number of trucks used, solving the shortage of drivers, reducing the burden on receiving warehouses by reducing the number of deliveries, and reducing CO2 emissions.

As a lifestyle proposal trading company, we will work with our customers and business partners to create a society where we can sympathize with sustainable values.

Japan's largest organic cotton promotion project ORGABITS
Toyoshima, which has been involved in cotton for more than 180 years with the cotton shop as its founder, started the "ORGABITS" project in 2005 with the desire to contribute to the global environment and society one by one through organic cotton. Expand organic farmland through the spread of organic cotton and improve environmental pollution. Our goal is to increase the percentage of organic cotton, which is only 1% of the world's cotton, to 10%.
Products using Ogavitz have an original tag, and 10 yen is donated for each tag, which leads to support organizations that work for what is good for the environment and society.
Projects that can be used to popularize organic cotton, such as support for organic cotton farmers in India and support for returning to school.
A project in which clinical clowns (clinic = hospital, crown = clown) regularly visit the hospital rooms of children living in the hospital to support the growth of children through play and conversation
Bule Ocean Project
A project that not only protects sea turtles, but also preserves marine animals and the seashore environment, and explores and realizes ways to preserve the livelihoods and culture of people living near the coast, fishermen, and people who come into contact with sea turtles.
Japanese cotton cultivation
The domestic self-sufficiency rate of cotton, which was once actively cultivated in various parts of the Japan, is now almost 0%. We grow such Japan native cotton "Wasagi" on the rooftops of our Tokyo Head Office (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) Watarase Tochigi Prefecture. We invite people involved in ORGABITS to Watarase to experience sowing and harvesting. By actually experiencing the soil in the field, you can realize that the material of the clothes is originally made from plants.
In addition to cultivating, we also manufacture products using some of these Japanese coffins at ORGABITS.
Creating products that lead to the future FOOD TEXTILE
"FOOD TEXTILE" is a sustainable project brand consisting of three companies: Toyoshima Co., Ltd., a food-related company that provides colored raw materials, and a collaborative company that develops products using the dough. We purchase non-standard ingredients, cut vegetable scraps, coffee dumplings, etc. that have been discarded in the past from food-related companies and farms, extract the ingredients contained in the ingredients, and dye them into new items by dyeing them into fabrics and threads. We will transcend industry boundaries and work with various business partners to address the problem of food loss.
