Most have heard of the devastating effects that continue to plague our oceans, rivers, and animal life due to our appetite for plastic convenience. The main purpose of this race is to educate others about Zero Waste and plastic alternatives 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 a fiscally sponsored project of MarinLink.
