We’ve been busy! Since we started, we have supported and organised:
We have collected tons of waste at our green events and cleanups. Of that,
Our largest event yet, with a whopping 51,000 participants – small wonder that we ended up with 23 bins of plastic bottles and cans, salvaged 1,300 over towels and a haul of 525.5kg of banana peels at the end of the event! Our army of volunteers worked tirelessly both day and night encouraging the participants to keep the running routes clean and to remind them to dispose of their trash in the proper bins.
We’re proud that we made this run for a good cause even more worthy by educating participants on responsible waste disposal. With the help of passionate young volunteers from Victoria Junior College, we collected almost 110kg of fruit peel and reached out to 7,000 participants.
Our volunteers collected waste, repurposed towels, and rescued excess food to be donated to community centers. Altogether, we collected a massive 388kg of banana peels to be used as compost in community gardens – we’re certain that the crops grew very well for the next few months!
