promotes the ideas and practices of "green purchasing" in Japan.

The 2,876 organizations (Jan 2005) join our network including corporations,
local autonomous bodies, consumer groups, environmental NGOs,
and cooperative associations.

Purchasing guidelines for various products and maintains an extensive product database
and awarding commendations to organizations that have excellently performed
in implementing green purchasing is our major activities.

They've organized a big "Say No to Plastic Bag campaign" involving
500 million people last October.
