The only one about electricity, I do disagree. Electricity is saved mostly due to shortage in production. I feel electricity must be saved to max possible & utilized for manufacturing sector.

I checked the labels for place of origin. None of them were grown in Kanto or Tohoku. Some have been marked down 50%, and customers still aren’t touching them. I really don’t understand this way of thinking. It seems that people don’t trust labels, or official assurances of safety. Actually I can’t blame them.
