This is the second half of the radio that invited Kiori-san from Crux Osaka. We talked about the charm of climbing connected with ‘climbing style’ in the closed room of a hotel that stayed at midnight. It was a wonderful time to re-recognize the depth and breadth of the game of climbing.

Two and a half years since the launch of BOOST. In no time, the genre of chalk groundwork has become commonplace. There are many ways to use it. I feared over-drying of BOOST, and the expiration date was 1 week in a vacuum pack. However, people who use it after drying, those who spray REACT in the pack, those who use it as a paste mixed with water A lot of feedback has arrived, and I am surprised every day by the climber’s inquisitiveness to friction.

Reuse promotion campaign discount in progress
One month has passed since our bottle reuse program started. Although we have yet to collect enough products to be released, we are confident that we will be able to create a sustainable cycle in the long run with the support of our stores.
From around August this year, we also have decided to switch all our packed products to include recycled content. We are currently conducting a final selection of materials with suppliers who possess the best technology to make this happen.
If all goes well, we will start using these in mid-August to early September.

Although the calculation of 2017 is listed – these are not exact due to inventory and other reasons. Some of the raw materials have been carried over from 2017, and the capital goods purchases in 2017 were large but amounting to 14% lower than the increase in fuel. In the future, there may be some variation in the calculation, but it can be said that the number of ongoing activities after deducting capital goods is higher than last year.
