Eco-responsability

12 ECO-GESTURES

Since 2018, the non-profit organization Sport&Santé promotes 12 eco-gestures: 5 eco-gestures suggested to the participants and 7 eco-gestures that the organization commits to pursue.

21 ECO-GESTURES

Our organisation tries to organize an event that is as eco-responsible as possible. Although there is still a long way to go, the bar is set a little higher every year. The 12 eco-gestures, shared between organizer and participants, are the ecological roadmap of event.

Carsharing or use public transport: We want to aim for the lowest possible carbon print and the travel of the runners to the event is the biggest concern. In addition to stimulating the use of public transport and carpooling, the event invests in the purchase of more than a thousand metro/tram tickets.

Don’t waste on aid stations: this is a piece of advice that is given to the runners but also applies to the organizers. After the last runner has passed, excess stocks are either used on another supply or passed on to an organisation such as the Salvation Army that fights against poverty.

Respect the green spaces you cross: Brussels Environment with its Walloon (Eaux et Forêts) and Flemish (Natuur en bos) sisters ask the users of the forest to respect the fauna and flora, for example by staying on the paths provided by the organisation.

Reuse and bring your own cup: finally zero waste supplies! Just bring your own cup or folding cup (obligatory equipment) to avoid thousands of cups on the ground. It’s a trademark of the Trail of the Meyboom: take your personal cup to be served at the refreshments on the course or at the finish (buffet or final snack).

Support an ecological or humanitarian work: the Trail of the Meyboom, via the ASBL sport et santé, directly supports several organizations (Unicef, CNCD, Vivre Ensemble …) but the runners also have the possibility via the registration form to make a donation to a good cause.

Medal and t-shirt on request: in order not to produce unnecessarily, medals – for example – are optional.

Limiting and sorting waste: Brussels Cleanliness, partner of the event, allows sorting and composting waste. Selective sorting is therefore planned in the village and at the refreshment Reusable and returnable cups will be available in the tent. Participants who use the selective sorting could be rewarded. Surprise.

Work with the educational community ands involve young people : le Trail du Meyboom collabore avec le monde de l’enseignement et notamment les élèves du CERIA et sa section sécurité. Collaborate with the world of education and involve young people: The Trail of the Meyboom collaborates with the world of education and in particular the students of CERIA and its safety section.

Recycle the material: the advertising tarpaulins are transformed into storage bags or “original” bags given to the winners of the races.

Make locally: it is not easy to produce everything locally but we try. We favour local production. Trophies, for example, are made locally.

Destine the revenues to local associations: for each t-shirt worn, 1€ will be given to Natagora which protects biodiversity. Scout units or the non-profit organisation Vivre Ensemble are also supported to compensate for their support to the event.
