Eco Labyrinth Promotes Environmental Responsibility in Eight Bulgarian Cities

5 October 2015, Dupnitsa

Greed and indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources have led humankind deep into a labyrinth of numerous critical environmental problems. It is only through knowledge and perseverance that an exit could be found. Eco Labyrinth, a unique innovative educational tool, places kids in the shoes of humankind – in a labyrinth full of environmental choices. Some of them are wrong and lead you to a dead end, others are correct and take you out of the labyrinth.

To enter the labyrinth each kid should provide an “entrance fee” – one used beverage carton (UBC). Then the journey begins: What reusable materials can be found in UBC; How many trees do we save by recycling one ton of cardboard; How many years does it take for plastic to decompose in nature, etc. Step by step, the right answers lead to the exit and the well-deserved rewards.

Eco Labyrinth is created and operated by DeConi for Tetra Pack, the world’s largest producer of beverage cartons, and Ecopack Bulgaria, the country’s leading packaging recovery organization.
