Glass City Marathon Green Team

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Glass City Marathon Green Team

For the last two years, Partners for Clean Streams has been partnering with the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon and the Toledo Roadrunners to make the marathon a green event. This means helping them reduce their environmental impact by making sure that all of the waste from the event ends up in the correct recycling stream and is disposed of properly. This ensures that our waterways do not got littered with debris and that the marathon can continue on its path towards having a sustainable event. Please volunteer for the 2018 Marathon Green Team. We need all hands on deck to ensure that no debris ends up in our waterways!

Over the last two years PCS was able to divert:

  • 1650 pounds of glass
  • 2600 pounds of cardboard
  • 165 pounds of plastic overwrap and heat sheets
  • 150 pounds of plastic water bottles and cups
  • 360 pounds of paper cups
  • 46 pounds of Energy Gel packets

Help us to continue this tradition and do your part to make the Glass City Marathon and the waterways of Northwest Ohio clean, clear and safe for everyone!
