Your Empty Bottle Is Full Of Promise.
Poland Spring® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water is proud to introduce Recycle4HumanitySM, a unique program designed to turn recycled bottles into sports equipment for inner-city children. This season, Poland Spring has partnered with the B.A.A. Youth Running Program to help keep the sport alive with a donation of running equipment made partially out of recycled plastic. Did you know that as few as five recycled bottles could be used to make a T-shirt? That's right, every bottle counts, which is why we're encouraging our consumers to join us in attaining our goal of surpassing the number of bottles recycled at last year's Boston Marathon. In 2009, we managed to recycle 8,000 bottles, and with your help, we have no doubt that we can set a new record in 2010. To find out how you can help, stop by one of the Poland Spring™ activation locations found at the start of the race (Athletes' Village) and along the course at the Poland Spring Hydration Station located at Mile 19. You can even enter for a chance to win great prizes and pick up a complimentary bottle of Poland Spring® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water, which is sourced only from carefully selected natural springs. Remember, together we CAN make a difference. Please Recycle.
