Coral Gables, Fla.-based Turbana Corp. will be the official banana sponsor and composting partner for the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. Weekend events are set for Oct. 24-25.
Turbana has fueled runners there with 30,000 bananas yearly since 2012 through its Powered by the Peel initiative, said Marion Tabard, marketing director.
In 2013, the company introduced a composting program to the more than 200,000 attendees.
“This year, we plan to grow our composting program by creating additional opportunities for participants to compost throughout the event weekend,” said Tabard. “Each year we participate, we hope to inspire communities to eat smart, stay active and get involved in their community.”
