About PBP Foundation

Please tell us about your business.

We sell products made from organic cotton produced in India with a fund attached to them, and use the fund to support cotton farmers in India to switch to organic farming and to support their children to return to school, and to access school with scholarships. The fund also allows the farmers to grow new organic cotton and create new products. We are engaged in such a circulation business.

Please tell us about the background of your establishment.

Tatsuya Kasai, the current president of the company, was inspired by the idea that in India, where there are farmers who grow cotton, the raw material for clothing.

The earth is being seriously damaged by the large amount of chemical fertilisers, and pesticides and the harvest is decreasing year by year. 30,000 farmers commit suicide every year because of the debt to purchase pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Many children are working instead of going to school because their income is reduced and their life becomes more difficult. These facts led us to start the PEACE BY PEACE COTTON PROJECT, the predecessor of the PEACE BY PEACE COTTON FOUNDATION.
