A business made up of supply and demand. The environmental cost of a convenient service that you can get for free is immeasurable. The author has lived abroad since 2015, and was made to experience the convenience of living in Tokyo and to think about its impact on the environment. For example, Scandinavian countries introduced paid plastic bags at supermarkets long before Japan. Japan also charged a plastic bag a few years later, but there was a big difference in that plastic bag. The difference is the price and quality of the plastic bags. As you can see, the plastic is the same, but it's made firmly so that you can get it when you buy clothes and shoes in Japan. The size is also one size larger than what you usually see in supermarkets in Japan. And this plastic is made of 100% recycled plastic. The price is several tens of yen per bag.
Because of this price setting and quality, it is a bag that consumers will use many times. The author thinks this is one of the business models in which consumers and businesses are becoming more aware of sustainability. Similarly for delivery, Danish citizens usually send mail to the post office closest to their home rather than having it delivered directly to their home.
Many homes do not have ping pong like Japan. That's why delivery trucks come and go from the post office, and consumers email the post office to notify them of the arrival of their parcels. I feel that there is no system that sends to convenience stores that accept 24 hours a day like in Japan.
It may be said that it is the Scandinavian style that not only consumers but also companies actively work on sustainability and gradually change consumer consciousness and lifestyle.
