In 2015, Marlabs started the ET Run with the simple objective of promoting good health and well-being, which quickly gained repute and joined the ranks of the Top 10 Runs in Bangalore.
On January 20, 2019, Marlabs is relaunching the run as GLOBAL GREEN RUN because it believes that technology and environment can co-exist.
Residing in the Silicon Valley of India, we all know that e-waste is one of the most dangerous and looming problems of this century all over the world. Outdated electronics like cell phones, laptops and gaming consoles go straight from the trash piles into a landfill, and they don’t just disappear. The plastics are not biodegradable and eventually, everything finds its way into the groundwater. Contaminated groundwater and soils can cause serious damage to the atmosphere and human life.
GLOBAL GREEN RUN is tied to a pledge that Marlabs wants to take along with the citizens, visitors, runners and running enthusiasts of all ages to reuse, recycle and reduce e-waste responsibly for the rest of our lives.
Besides upholding good health and well-being, GLOBAL GREEN RUN is a personal commitment that we all can make towards helping to transform our tomorrow. The funds raised via Marlabs will be given back to help local environment-focused NGOs to conduct initiatives related to e-waste management and greening.
This is a great opportunity everyone in Bangalore to show support and have some fun!
