How Japanese Culture Helps Chattanooga Be Environmentally Friendly | Asami Nakano | TEDxChattanooga

In Japanese Furoshiki, a simple square cloth can be used for many things—a bag for grocery shopping, a table cloth, gift wrap. What if we could use the traditional art of Furoshiki to reduce waste in Chattanooga? In this talk, Asami Nakano will show how Furoshiki can promote environmentally friendly behavior with this traditional Japanese practice as well as introduce the idea of mottainai, the understanding in Japan, a small island country that its people should always be taught to not to waste things.
