We can RUN but we can’t hide from climate change.
This environmental race is designed to bring the vision of Zero Waste to reality through action and education! Zero Waste principles will help heal our planet and protect its resources through conservation, reuse, and recycling. 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. Our mission is to bring awareness to individuals and organizations about Zero Waste principles to create real solutions to a global problem.
Event highlights include:
Healing Through Action:
Cup-Free (Bring Your Own Bottle) 5K Fun Run/1 Mile Walk
Volunteer Beach 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.

Race to Zero Waste is committed in providing environmental solutions and alternatives to one-use disposables. The planning committee plans to bring a 5K Fun Run and outdoor environmental forum to San Francisco through community support and volunteer dedication. This is a fiscally sponsored project of MarinLink.
