As part of the Oriental Land Company’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment, Tokyo Disney Resort has released a line of environmentally friendly products made using recycled materials collected at the parks as part of its “Circulating Smiles” collection.
The recycling initiative has resulted in an interesting collection of environmentally conscious goods, made with plastic PET bottles, organic cotton, used coffee grounds and even cast member costumes! The collection features soft and natural colours and features a classic Mickey Mouse design.
The Circulating Smiles is available for purchase now on the Tokyo Disney Resort official app.
To create items from plastic PET bottles, the park collects and compresses plastic bottles from trash cans at the park, and crushes them into fine flakes, which are then turned into thread used for products.
The fabric for these items are coloured with a dye extracted from coffee grounds, which is provided at the park’s restaurants and cafes. The items feature a fun design inspired by park drinks.
Tokyo Disney Resort has created a sturdy rucksack from the costumes worn by the cast of the park, which is recycled and used as part of the raw material. The design incorporates cast member name tags.

More Things to Do in Tokyo
My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
