The eco Olympic and Paralympic medals by Tokyo 2020!

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has commenced the nationwide collection of discarded and obsolete electronic devices, whose metals will be used to produce medals for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The project aims to engage the whole Japanese nation and will offer everyone the opportunity to play a role in the Games’ preparations, while drawing public attention to the importance of sustainability. The Organising Committee aims to collect as much as eight tons of raw metal – around 40kg of gold, 4,900 kg of silver and 2,900 kg of bronze - which following the production process will yield around two tons of pure metal, enough to produce 5,000 medals for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
