Glass City Marathon Green Team

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Glass City Marathon Green Team

For the fourth year in a row, we are the Green Team at the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon.  With help from our partners at the Toledo Roadrunners, we work to make the marathon as sustainable as possible.  We do our part for Earth Month by diverting thousands of pounds of waste from a landfill through our recycling efforts.  We support healthy runners and healthy rivers!  We would like to thank our partners at the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon, Toledo Roadrunners Club, Goodwill Industries, Toledo ZooTeens, and our many volunteers who helped runners to recycle and did their part for the planet this year!

 

 

As the Green Team, PCS has diverted over 10,000 lbs of materials from ending up in the landfill!

Our impact:

  • 2400 lbs of glass
  • 4200 lbs of cardboard
  • 225 lbs of plastic overwrap and heat sheets
  • 450 lbs of plastic bottles and cups
  • 2900 lbs of compost
  • 91 lbs of Energy Gel packets
