Awards for Achievement in Promoting Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Activities
The aims of the Awards for Achievement in Promoting Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Activities (3R Awards) are to raise awareness and encourage efforts relating to the 3Rs and move toward the creation of a resource-recycling society. This awards program recognizes individuals, groups, and operations that have made notable achievements through ongoing commitment to 3R initiatives. During October each year (3R Month), the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Promotion Council (3R Promotion Council for short) hosts an award ceremony.
Note that from their initiation in fiscal 1992 until 2001, these awards were presented as the Awards for Achievement in Recycling.

The Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Promotion Association
Originally established in September 1991 as the Recycling Promotion Association, its name was changed to the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Promotion Association in June 2002, with the recognition that to solve Japan's serious waste problems, it would be essential to expand from the conventional approach focused only on one R (recycling), and use the 3Rs to create a society based on sound material cycles. Today the association's members include about 100 consumer groups and industry organizations.
This association is hosted by the following two organizations.
