The 2019 Mumbai Marathon bans single-use plastics

The 2019 edition of the Tata Mumbai Marathon concluded on the 20th of January 2019 as a “fully waste-managed event”. Vendors and other parties at the event were banned from using single-use plastics, while participants and spectators were urged to bring their own water bottles and reusable food containers instead. The event organisers also managed to cut down on paper usage by providing entry forms and handbooks via e-mail.
