The ski area of Bansko forbids plastic

The establishments that are located in Bansko ski area this winter do not offer any plastic products. Plastic bottles have been replaced with glass bottles, cups with cardboard. The disposable slides from which the skiers will receive are now made of bamboo, and disposable utensils such as dishes and stirrers are already made of completely biodegradable materials such as wood or paperboard. In 2018, 1.3 tonnes of plastic products were collected and handed over to the recycling zone.

The new eco-initiative is the concessionaire of the ski-zone joint-stock company “Yulen”. The rules have been in force since the beginning of this season. Despite the innovations, prices for end-customers of food and beverages remain unchanged. The concessionaire underlines that since 2012 garbage in the ski area has been collected separately, and this is also part of the efforts of the owner of the track to preserve nature.

I love history, to walk through old cobblestone streets, to smell the air of the past times and to feel the legends in the air. And I'm lucky to have been born in a country with a glorious past and a lot of stories to tell. Bulgaria was founded more than 1,300 years ago and has never changed its name. But the life of people, their everyday habits, their traditions, their music and their art have changed over the centuries. I invite you to take a walk through the different ages of Bulgaria and to get to know it better.
