5 pounds!

That's all the waste that was landfilled from the 2013 We Care Twin Cities Half Marathon. The Ecology Action Center implemented zero waste strategies to reduce the amount of waste generated and ultimately landfilled at the event. These strategies included replacing disposable water cups with reusable HydraPouches, repurposing award trophies, implementing food waste composting and recycling with help from Midwest Fiber Recycling & C.O.P.S. Shredding, replacing the traditional pre-race expo giveways with Virtual Race Bags, and offering recycling of race gear, bibs, shoes, electronics, and TerraCycle recycling of Clif Bar and granola bar wrappers. The result? With approximately 1,500 people attending (including racers, volunteers, family members, etc.), only about five pounds of trash was landfilled! Thank you for all of your support in this effort!
