JUST WATER SPONSORSHIP with RUN WARRANDYTE.
We are excited to announce our event partnership with the eco-friendly company Just Water!
Just Water takes Spring Water that is sourced from Mt Warranheip in Ballarat, Victoria and packages it in plant based, eco-friendly cartons, made by Tetra Pak.
The packaging materials and processes result in 75% less harmful emissions, primarily C02, compared to a standard PET plastic bottle.
The design of the carton was created to remain flat until it is filled with water, meaning Tetra Pak use only 1 truck to transport the cartons, compared to the same number of plastic bottles needing 13 trucks!
Being an eco-friendly event is super important to us and Just Water and Tetra Pak will be providing water on course and at the finish line in 2021 to keep our event COVID safe for our runners.
We love the beautiful State Park that our event is held in and are very lucky to be able to stage Run Warrandyte in such a location.
It’s important to us that The River that runs through our township and the surrounding Bush Lands are well looked after for future generations to enjoy. Conserving the environment around us and further afield is important to us.
This is the reason we are moving towards being an Eco Friendly – zero waste event.
What We Are Doing To Achieve This:
- Last year we reduced waste by going as paper free as we could.
- Show bags with advertising brochures were removed and all marketing was done online through social media, our website and our e-marketing newsletters.
- This year we will be using eco-friendly recycleable water cups and encourage our runners to provide their own re-usable cups or drink bottles.
- We offer the option to buy these at registration.
- All our food outlets are using Eco Friendly, Biodegradable cups and packaging.
- We encourage registration be done using the automated system online.
- Info packs are emailed and we encourage our runners not to print them (keep them on your phone or tablet).
