mamoru is a free mobile app that connects you to sustainability-focused shops and businesses.
The name comes from a Japanese word meaning "to protect."
When you visit and support the listed shops and businesses, you can help protect the environment and society.
Our mission is to connect and empower people and businesses to protect our planet.
We believe that together, our day to day actions can lead to global changes.
Our "torii"logo represents an appreciation of all natural things.
Our logo is an interpretation of a Japanese "torii" (gate) found at Japanese shrines. It is inspired by the belief that all natural things are sacred and have a "kami" (spirit).
The logo represents an appreciation of all natural things and is a reminder for us to protect the natural world.
