Those Things You Didn’t Know About the TOKYO 2020 Olympics

Tokyo Olympic Games


A podium made of garbage? A bed made of paper?

surprised to be the most “shabby” Olympics in history

Is all this a “distortion” of humanity or a “decay” of morality?

Welcome to the special section of Sports Channel “Those Things You Didn’t Know About the Olympics


Cardboard beds

For this Olympics, Tokyo government has prepared 26,000 beds, each with a length of 2 meters and a width of 90 cm. From the head of the bed to the bed frame, they are all made of cardboard. There is no metal or wood in it . After the Olympics, they will be completely recycled and reused.

It seems okay but when you look closer…..


Inner structure




However, Takashi Kitajima the general manager of the Tokyo Olympic Village explains that these cardboard beds are no problem even for a big fat man weighing 400 kilograms.and these cardboard beds are even stronger than wooden beds.

(I don’t know if athletes can sleep well. Anyway, those beds look like they’re going to collapse…)


Medals extracted from e-waste

All the medals of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 are made of gold, silver and copper that are extracted from waste recycling.


Medals made of recycled materials


Torch made of waste aluminum

The top of the Olympic torch is shaped like sakura and is made of  aluminum, which is mainly taken from the scrap of the prefabricated house built during the Great East Japan Earthquake.

Although many netizens are complaining about the’“stingy”of  the Tokyo Olympics , and the way of recycling resources without burdening the environment shows that Japan’s adherence to the concept of environmental protection is commendable.

We must know that the environmental pollution is getting more serious and shocked by numerous plastic garbage that scattered around the ocean

These plastic wastes is a huge threat to the marine ecosystem. Ocean lives eat plastic waste by mistake and these wastes could  remain in the their bodies for several months, eventually causing their death due to the inability to digest any food.

For this moment, a question comes up in my mind: how do we deal with packaging in our daily lives?

Abandoned or throw it away or keep it anyway in the corner and forget it !


Power Solution has such a product, breaking the tradition of the entire solar industry, making the packaging into another external  one daily product!


Solar Media & package


Do you think this packaging designed by the international renowned designer “Tiger Pan” is just as simple as it looks in the first time?

Of course you were wrong ! This packaging can be “reshaped”.


It’s a paper box, but also a wardrobe (empowering new values and reducing wastes)


Solar Media is paper-structured that can be turned into a wardrobe and hanger for end users’ daily use through simple folding and adjustment. That’s the reuse of packaging.

Over the years, many distributors reported that the users who buy a complete set of solar products will only leave the solar products for themselves, and all the packaging and protective covers can only be thrown away.

This package realizes the function Plus, not only reduces waste but is more like “buy one get one free”–buy solar lights and get a wardrobe free.
