Solar power, wind power, carbon credits.
It’s not what you expect in a board game, but the eco-friendly game Earthopoly focuses on the environment, teaching kids to go green while playing a game.
Earthopoly is an eco-friendly toy educating kids about climate change, conservation, and taking care of the Earth. A take-off on the standard Monopoly (which is all about the money…) with an environmental focus, children collect carbon credits and trade them in for clean air, increasing property values through recycling and reducing.
Players visit different geological formations, learn about our planet, and pick up green tips while avoiding getting sent to The Dump! Quite a change from the original Monopoly, eh?
The game was created with the intent to make it as eco-friendly as possible. The board and game box are made from recycled materials, the paper has recycled content and is printed with soy-based ink, and the shrink wrap holding it all together is EarthFirst® PLA film, a compostable plant-based product. Even the game tokens are either recyclable or sourced from nature, making it easy on your eco conscience.
“We had a great time creating Earthopoly. Our intention was to bring something fun and good into our world. For those of you who buy it and play it, we hope you enjoy it. We realize a game won’t change the world but we hope to be part of the transition that brings us all to a better place.” – Late for the Sky website
