Teijin's Green Carpet to be rolled out at 24th TIFF

Sep '11
Teijin Limited announced that for the fourth consecutive year it has produced an eco-friendly Green Carpet made of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles for the ecologically minded Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF), which will be held from October 22 to 30.

The Green Carpet is made entirely of Teijin Fibers' ECOPET recycled polyester fiber produced from used PET bottles. A total of 1,600m x 90cm carpet material, equivalent to about 23,000 recycled half-liter PET bottles, will be used for the TIFF, including a green carpet that will replace the conventional red carpet at the opening ceremony in Tokyo's Roppongi Hills complex.

The carpet material also will be used to produce Green Pen Cases for giveaway to customers of Toei Subway as part of a TIFF-related campaign, and to people who attend a TIFF special screening on October 25 in Sendai, one of the cities affected by the March 11 disaster.

Teijin also will provide a number of other green items for the festival, including Green Ties, "Greenchief" handkerchiefs and Green Ribbons for guests, as well as jackets for festival staffers. The items are produced with eco-friendly ECO CIRCLE FIBERS, which are chemically recycled fibers produced from used polyester products. Made with Teijin's proprietary ECO CIRCLE chemical-recycling system, the fibers offer the same high quality as products made directly from petroleum.

Since 2008, TIFF has embraced the theme of ecology with a variety of green initiatives, including the use of Teijin's Green Carpet. TIFF also uses green power for all screenings and official events to help reduce CO2 emissions.

Based in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, Teijin is a global technology-driven group operating in eight main fields: aramid fibers, carbon fibers & composites, polyester fibers, plastics, films, medical & pharmaceuticals, fiber products marketing and IT businesses. Teijin Limited, the holding company for the Teijin Group, is listed on the Tokyo and Osaka stock exchanges.
