Did You Know?

Glass City Marathon Green Team VolunteerDid You know that Partners for Clean Streams is a charity partner for the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon? For the past five years, PCS has been the “Green Team,” which is responsible for recycling cardboard, glass, aluminum, plastic, heat sheets, Gu packs and more! We are their go-to partner for brainstorming ways to make the races more sustainable from the beginning to the end. Much of the “greening” happens before the race even begins – from packaging the t-shirts in bulk rather than being wrapped in plastic individually to vendors bringing more sustainable or recyclable products – we’re helping decrease the environmental impact. By the end of the long weekend, we’re making sure the course is cleaned of Gu packs that can be Terracycled® and people leave more knowledgeable about reducing waste. Please consider supporting us and make a donation to assist us in promoting healthy runners and rivers!
