Each year, orizuru paper cranes are sent from around the world to the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima City, wishing for peace. The number of orizuru is about 10 million (weighing around 10 tons). We hope to spread the message of peace enclosed in these origami cranes around the world, inspiring more people to have kind hearts for peace. With this wish, EARTH Hiroshima gives new life as a goods to “Oirzuru recycled paper (*)”, embedded with colorful fragments of Origami.
The new “perpetual calendar made from orizuru recycled paper” is the fifth product in the “orizuru recycled paper” series, following the notebooks (gold wing and silver wing), paper aroma diffusers (peace/love), and card cases.
Let us mark a span of 10,000,000 years with the wishes of 10 million origami cranes for peace in the future.
<*Oirzuru recycled paper>
After being stored for a certain period of time, orizuru paper cranes sent to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park are brought to Sheltered workshops etc. There, the cranes are unfolded one by one, sorted by color, and dissolved in water to be reborn.
The orizuru crane recycled paper, with colorful fragments scattered evenly throughout, is filled with thoughts of peace and a wish to connect to the next generation.
