Give Back at This Year’s Boston Marathon with Preserve and Stonyfield

Boston Marathon Recycling

For over a decade, Stonyfield has partnered with Preserve Gimme 5 to recycle millions of yogurt cups into new products – like the Preserve toothbrush. Today, as the official yogurt of the Boston Marathon, Stonyfield is working with Preserve Gimme 5 to recycle yogurt cup samples at the Boston Marathon.

Marathons and other sporting events often create a tremendous amount of waste due to the lack of infrastructure and logistical constraints. Given the generous amount of Stonyfield yogurt cups sampled, it is important to do our part to recycle at this renown event. As a recycling partner, Preserve works with Stonyfield to make sure every yogurt cup that wants to be recycled finds a home in a Gimme 5 bin.
