What does 'Ecotwaza' mean? 'Eco' is the abbreviation for 'ecology' and 'waza' is Japanese for 'technology' or 'craftsmanship.' The 't', which can also be viewed as '+' literally means 'and' in Japanese. Hence, as its namesake suggests, founded in 2006, Ecotwaza aims to lower the ecological footprint of the global society by communicating ecological mind and technology/crafts to the world. Why Japan? Why small business? Traditional Japanese philosophy and culture is based on the awareness that human is merely a part of Mother Nature, forming a unique set of sustainable customs and lifestyle. On the contrary, the country has had its painful yet memorable lesson of environment pollution as a result of rapid economic growth in the 1960s. Through its tradition and having learnt from its mistakes, Japan possesses, in its small business sectors, the seeds of state-of-the-art environmental technology. However, since they are relatively small and not equipped with English proficiency, they remain invisible to and untapped by the world.
