Comments on: Donation with your drink? Taking the pulse of trends, trend-watchers and trendmakers in Japan. Thu, 07 Nov 2013 08:29:40 +0000 hourly 1 By: Kevin Wed, 22 Dec 2010 11:36:42 +0000 I would donate trough it because I just hate having little 10 cent coins…

Coca-Cola does some stuff like this in Japan too, like having vending machines that dispense free drinks in the case of emergencies and earthquakes.

I’ve also seen vending machines that claim to give some of the 100 yen or whatever to protecting forestries (not that that is really a problem in Japan, with land being 70% covered in forests — they tend to export all these issues by getting timber from the Philippines and China).
