Run for Zero Waste
Income Eco Run Returns After a 3-Year Hiatus Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic
(Singapore June 6, 2023) Income Eco Run is one of Southeast Asia’s Eco Runs that aims to champion environmental conservation and encourage everyone to play their part in supporting the cause for Zero Waste. It has been three years since the last edition due to Covid-19, but its back!
Income Eco Run 2023 edition will take place on Sunday, 11 June 2023, at the Marina Barrage.
This year, the organizers are taking a step further and donating $1.00 for every kilometre (1 km) clocked to the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) in support of the Zero Waste cause. The Run is designed in a way that participants are able to choose their own distance.
As part of the efforts to reduce waste and carbon footprint, the running bibs will be much smaller, and runners will be given a reusable cup to keep hydrated throughout the run. The running t-shirts are made with 100% recycled material and optional for purchase! Participants will also receive an e-certificate in recognition of their participation.
Income Eco Run 2023 will also feature an incredible Income Eco Run Village, where one can explore a wide array of green vendors and their sustainable offerings. With over 20 vendors participating, this is an excellent opportunity to discover and support local businesses that are dedicated to promoting eco-friendly products and services.
Here are a few vendors you can expect to find:
Wake the Crew Coffee: Enjoy the aroma of locally produced and organically sourced coffee. What makes their coffee even more special is that all coffee grounds used in production are composted, promoting a circular economy.
MYKILIO: Discover the innovative brand championing mycelium (mushroom) technology. MYKILIO offers a range of sustainable products, including mycelium-made bowls and other functional byproducts. Experience their unique creations that combine eco-consciousness and creativity.
Semula Asia: Witness the transformation of plastic bottle caps into functional products. Semula Asia repurposes waste materials, showcasing the potential of upcycling and encouraging sustainable consumption.
Zenko Superfood: Try snacks made from the superfood ingredient, Lotus, which are locally and organically produced.
These are just a few examples of the vendors at the Income Eco Run Village. From sustainable food and beverages to eco-friendly merchandise and transformative technologies, there is something for everyone who shares a passion for a greener future.
