Kao Corporation published an environment textbook entitled "Thoughts about Tomorrow's Earth" to promote understanding of environmental issues. The textbook is compiled with materials based on the selected works of the Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children, which has been held annually since 2010. It shows prize-winning works by children around the world focusing on the theme of eco together over the past five years. These paintings are categorized in such environmental themes as "Water," "Forests and Trees," and "Energy" with related data and explanations.
Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children has received more than 33,000 entries from 67 countries and regions over the past five years.
