our commitment

For EWEB, creating a sustainable, low-carbon future is a core value that guides everything we do.

We’re committed to making Run to Stay Warm as sustainable as possible, to have a positive impact on our local and global community.

Here are some of our 2018 sustainability measures:

  • Volunteers from Master Recyclers of Lane County will be onsite to help sort and dispose of waste.

  • All food scraps will be collected and composted.

  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles. The EWEB water trailer will be at the start/finish line supplying tap water; we will not provide plastic/disposable water bottles.

  • Plastic and aluminum energy drink containers will be collected and redeemed for deposit. Proceeds will be donated to EWEB’s Customer Care Program.

  • Unused food will be donated to Eugene Mission.

  • Reusable/multi-purpose finisher medallions are bottle openers donated by Pelican Brewing.

  • To minimize waste, we are not providing race bags. If you would like a bag for your bib, shirt and personal belongings, please bring your own. 

  • We eliminate unnecessary items whenever possible and reuse materials for multiple events.

  • We have sourced food and materials from local vendors whenever possible.

  • We encourage alternative transportation.
