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 over three years, Partners for Clean Streams has been partnering with the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon and the Toledo Roadrunners to make the marathon a green event. This means helping them reduce their environmental impact by making sure that all of the waste from the event ends up in the correct recycling stream and is disposed of properly. This ensures that our waterways do not become littered with debris and that the marathon can continue on its path towards being certified sustainable. Please volunteer for the 2019 Marathon Green Team. We need all hands on deck to ensure that no debris ends up in our waterways!

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

Our impact in 2018:

  • 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
