Run To Make A Difference

What is Zero Plastic Marathon?
This is an event where participants run or walk to bring more attention to the negative environmental impacts caused by plastics. The event also seeks to create additional awareness on this very important issue. This event is organized by IRS and is the first of its kind in Delhi.

The Zero Plastic Marathon will continue annually until the single-use plastics in our everyday lives is zero, and until India becomes a zero single-use plastic nation. We all have a responsibility as individuals to achieve this goal.

Why Zero Plastic Marathon?
The main aim of the “Zero Plastic Marathon” is to advocate for banning or minimizing the use of everyday plastics which harm the environment. We want to increase the awareness on this serious issue. Our call is for the use of zero single-use plastics in our daily lives. We recognize that this goal cannot be achieved overnight by just us alone. However, we believe that it is very important for each and everyone to make a start and stay on this very important journey to zero single-use plastics.

Who can join?
Anyone and everyone can join the Zero Plastic Marathon! We encourage individuals and people from all walks of life – the civil servants and politicians, corporate and NGOs, uniformed services, students and educators, artists and entertainers, doctors, nurses and caregivers, families and friends, and all others – to join the run and begin their journey towards a plastic-free lifestyle.

What are the categories, deliverable details?
