Our Green Initiative
Our green initiative: The lead and sweep vehicles will be provided by the Ford Store Morgan Hill. They will be hybrids or fuel efficient vehicles.
We have appointed a committee to handle recycling throughout the weekend. Look for special recycling bins around the facilities. In addition we are spending additional money to make sure your goodie bags are reusable cinch bags.
Shoes for the City will be present at the Health Expo to accept shoes donations. These go to a good cause, please consider bringing a pair to help people in need. Only gently worn shoes. Thank you.
South Valley Endurance, LLC. recognizes the impacts that large events can have on the environment. This year, we have partnered with Nothing Wasted Consulting and the City of San Jose Environmental Services, and are working together to green the 2012 NorCal Half Marathon/Marathon. Through this partnership, we will have implemented sustainable waste management practices into the event. Any food scraps, paper food ware (such as plates, bowls, cups, napkins), and utensils can go into the green “compostable” container. Any plastic bottles, plastic containers, aluminum cans, and aluminum foil can go into the blue “recyclables” containers. For more information on our event greening efforts, please contact Nothing Wasted Consulting at email@example.com. With your help, we can make this the 2012 NorCal Half Marathon/Marathon clean and green.
