Sustainability

As Canada’s most trusted brand MEC strives to make great products and events that lessen our impact on the environment, improving the lives of everyone. MEC is proud of our estimated 90% waste diversion. With every part of MEC business, we look at the People, Planet and Product involved. For more information on Sustainability at MEC, take a look around http://www.mec.ca/Sustainability.

Here is what MEC TORONTO is doing to make our events more environmentally sustainable:

o    All of the cups used at events are 100% compostable.

o    Multi-bin waste stations are at race to help separate garbage from recycling and compostable materials. All water stations will recycle cardboard, paper, plastic and compostables.

o    Cups on the race course that are dropped are collected in clear bags and recycled

o    We recycle race bibs and envelopes for participants in the race

o    After the event, we sort through the event waste and compost, recycle and what we can. 

o    Transit friendly venues where possible

o    We choose minimal race packages and email communications to our participants to help limit paper consumption.

o    All signage is reused at other races in the series.

We encourage our attendees to do the following at our events. 

o    Participants of MEC events are encouraged to bike, take transit, walk or carpool to the events

o    Put your waste in the appropriate bins provided: Recycle, compost, or waste

o    BYOB: Bring Your Own Bottle

o    Reuse your own water bottle at our many fill stations or compostable cups provided.
