Clean Games is an environmental education project. Its mission is to offer people an opportunity to see, through the lens of a game, the extent of problems caused by environmental pollution, and to attract additional public attention to environmental issues. In 2019, SIBUR supported these games in three cities; in 2021, the project will continue in six cities.


185 Perm residents took part in Clean Games, a trash collection and waste sorting competition. In the hour and a half that the game lasted, they collected 338 bags of garbage, including 161 bags of mixed waste, 102 bags of glass waste, 70 bags of plastic bottles, 5 bags of scrap metal, as well as 41 batteries, and about 20 car tires (classified as hazardous waste). After the game, the trash was dumped at a landfill, while the recyclables (plastic, metal, glass and tires) were sent for recycling. Large-capacity power banks, trampoline center certificates and certificates to attend a quest were awarded to the competition’s winners.
