● Why a straw is useless?

A: Because small plastics like straws will remain in the sea

Small and difficult-to-recycle plastics often become disposable garbage, and it is said that most of them are spilled into the sea every year. Plastics that have been broken into fine particles in the ocean and eventually become fine particles are called "microplastics" and will spread and drift to the oceans around the world. Microplastics that are too small and difficult to recover can pollute the sea and even affect fish that feed on them, raising concerns about not only marine pollution but also ecosystem effects. .

In addition, we are also working on the following to protect the clean sea


| Beach clean activity


Beach cleanup is an activity to protect the sea. The amount of garbage remaining on sandy beaches increases especially after storms such as typhoons during summer, events, and so on. In order to stop such garbage from flowing into the sea, the Riviera collaborated with the Kanagawa Coastal Beautification Foundation to conduct beach cleanup activities that collect garbage on nearby beaches and sidewalks. We carry out every month.


| Practical experiment of electric propulsion ship


Operated the world's first fast-charging battery propulsion ship, "La Icho", as a shuttle boat. Conducted research jointly with Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology for the next generation of water transport.


| Education support for eelgrass


We support the Yokosuka Sea Citizens' Conference to protect the rich sea and cooperate in activities to protect marine ecosystems.

Beautiful sea calls people

Knowing the sea is truly beautiful, both in the sea and on the sandy beaches, will deepen your awareness of protecting the environment.
Through these efforts, the Riviera will start little by little with what we can do to protect the clean sea.
