History of the Eco-Shopping Game (according to their site):
The Eco-Shopping game is a game local to the North Central Texas region and was originally created by TXU Electric and Gas in 1997. The purpose of the game is to help educate the consumer on three aspects of product packaging:
- recyclability of the package,
- reducing the amount of packaging waste going into the landfill by buying products with less packaging, and
- giving preference to a packaging made with recycled content materials.
It reminds me of the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, with the talking bull, Longhorn Larry. I found it on timetorecycle.com. There are three different games in one. My favorite is the one where you separate your recyclables from trash before the garbage truck comes. :) I can’t get enough of it.
