author: Irina Bakke

The action "BUM — paper marathon" (BUM is a Russian abbreviation which stands for "paper marathon") started in Ufa at the city forum of the Social fund of city development. The action is initiated by the Social youth ecological organization "Ecorost" and JSC "Clean city" both acting under the Social fund of city development.

"Ecorost" and "Clean city" invite organizations and establishments, schools, gymnasiums, colleges and higher educational institutes of Ufa to join in waste paper collection, which helps to avoid deforestation. "It is necessary to define precisely the place of man in nature" the organizers of the action consider. 20 kilograms of waste paper can save one tree.
