WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

I was en­joy­ing a pint af­ter a big-city half marathon when a woman came into the pub, of­fer­ing every­one a free fin­isher’s T-shirt. It turned out she had noth­ing to do with the race but see­ing all the left­overs be­ing binned, and ap­palled by the waste, she’d filled her car with the dis­carded T-shirts, ba­nanas and bot­tled wa­ter. It raises ques­tions about the poli­cies of com­pa­nies deal­ing with the var­i­ous kinds of sur­plus big races in­evitably pro­duce. Phil Box, Bude, Corn­wall
