'Nendo' is selling an emergency preparedness kit that can be used in the event of an earthquake. When an earthquake struck Japan in March of 2011, millions of people were left without water and electricity. This emergency supply kit is designed to help city-dwellers cope in the event of future disasters.

The 'MINIM+AID kit' is an emergency preparedness kit that helps city-dwellers reach a place of refugee during a natural disaster. While most emergency supply kits contain similar items, this kit is specially designed to help people cope with a variety of different situations. The kit contains an emergency whistle that can be used to attract attention, an LED lantern that acts as a light source and a drinking vessel for purifying water. All of these items are housed inside of a compact tube that can be worn over the shoulder.

The MINIM+AID kit provides a simple and compact alternative to other emergency supply kits.
