The flags used to decorate the streets along the course of Tokyo Marathon 2019 during the event duration is recreated into a tote bag!
In our effort to become a sustainable event, instead of disposing the flags, we have recreated all of them into a tote bag to be reused and sold, where the portion of the sale profit will be donated to Tokyo Goodwill Bank (Tokyo Council of Social Welfare).
And in our interest to support and expand employment opportunities for people with disability, this sturdy tote bag featuring our event logo are produced through Support of Employment, Living and Participation (SELP), which is a non-profit organization supporting independent life-style for people with disability.
We have received many positive comments from the workers involved in the recreation, such as, "Being able to work with Tokyo Marathon has boosted my motivation to be part of society" and "Producing something by our own hands has led to have pride of workmanship in sewing".
Limited number will be available for purchase at running facility JOGPORT Ariake operated by Tokyo Marathon Foundation (https://jogport.com/access/) from Monday, August 19.
*This item is only available at JOGPORT Ariake, and we do not ship or accept purchase over the phone or email.
Be part of Tokyo Marathon in your daily life by using this tote bag in your everyday activity!
