Our Policy on Reducing Use of Disposable Plastic
The OLC Group is striving to reduce the use of disposable plastic in line with Our Environmental Policy.
With respect to items and restaurants where safety and convenience can be secured, we will continue stepping up our measures to reduce the use of plastic by adopting renewable resources, among others. We are also continuing with our efforts to recycle waste plastic through rigorous sorting.

Actions and Performances
Initiatives to Reduce Use of Disposable Plastic
We replaced plastic straws provided at restaurants at our Theme Parks and some hotels with paper straws in March 2019. Furthermore, we also began using paper cups instead of plastic cups to serve beer at Tokyo DisneySea in September 2019.
In addition, we started charging for the plastic shopping bags for merchandise purchases at locations within Tokyo Disney Resort, including Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, from October 2020.
