Thank you for being mindful of your environmental footprint here at Walt Disney World! During the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend Health and Fitness Expo, you’ll find the Disney Environmentality booth in the VISA Center. We encourage you to come by, snap a selfie and take part in an activity. We’d love to hear from our Guests of all ages!
Last season, Chiquita®, the runDisney and Epcot Custodial teams partnered to collect banana peels for recycling. These banana peels are then sent to Harvest Power, an on-site facility that converts non-consumable food scraps into electricity and fertilizer (learn more about Harvest Power here.) More than 3,500 pounds of banana peels were collected in the first year of this initiative!
So when you eat your banana after your event this year, whether it’s the 5k, 10k or half marathon, make sure you look for the yellow banana signs! Collection bins will be placed throughout the finish line, reunion and Race Retreat areas. You’ll also see collection points for mixed recycling, where you can dispose of your plastic bottles and empty snack boxes. Thank you for joining Disney in supporting our commitment to the planet!
