This event, the Tetra Pak Recycle, Feed, Run reminds me of another running event two years ago called The Bottle School Run wherein runners were asked to bring two (2) empty 1.5 or 2 liter PET soda bottles to avail of low registration fees while the plastic bottles are to be recycled to build a school using these recycled plastic materials.
A similar advocacy is aimed for the Tetra Pak RFR running event on November 18, 2012 wherein to register, runners are required to bring at least 2 (two) pieces of empty and clean Tetra Pak cartons at the registration centers which will be eventually recycled.
For every Tetra Pak carton received during the registration, one (1) piece of milk in Tetra Pak carton (200ml or 250ml package size) will be donated to a chosen children’s foundation under the Tetra Pak Feed-a-Child Program.
Here are the details of the race:
