We can RUN but we can’t hide from climate change.
This environmental program is designed to bring the vision of Zero Waste to reality through action and education! Race to Zero is devoted in educating individuals on zero waste principles and simple actions through reuse, source reduction, re-earth, and avoidance of single-use plastics. Race to Zero provides a fun and engaging platform through sponsored activities with information and tips geared toward waste-free living, promoting healthy and vibrant communities, and engagement of stakeholders.
Zero Waste principles will help heal our planet and protect its resources through resource conservation. These efforts can have a significant impact on greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. With our climate changing, the urgency to educate ourselves on its impact and how to prevent irreversible trends is immediate.
Some event highlights include:
Healing Through Action:
Cup-Free (Bring Your Own Bottle) 5K Fun Run/1 Mile Walk
Volunteer Beach, River, or Community Clean-up
Education and Awareness:
Sponsored Education Stations
Alternatives to Single-Use Plastics
Yoga, Music & Raffle Prizes
The main purpose of this race is to educate others about Zero Waste and plastic alertnatives through sponsored education stations. We believe this context will provide citizens with ‘real’ solutions to engage in policy and regulatory action; and in turn, help to reduce water and energy use while also curtailing harmful pollutants in the environment. As a result, it will grant community members participating in the race the tools and options they need to live more sustainably.
