Green Mile 5k Run/Walk 2014


From all of us at the Miami-Dade Branch of USGBC South Florida Chapter, we would like to say THANK YOU for taking part in The Green Mile 2014! We appreciate your
support of our nonprofit organization and commitment to healthy and sustainable lifestyles. It is through your participation
that we are able to further our mission and vision to transform the way buildings are built and ensure sustainability throughout our city and region. We look forward to seeing attendees at future Miami-Dade Branch programs. 

The Second Annual 5k walk/run on the beautiful Miami Beach boardwalk brought
out more than 100 participants. Everyone had a great time in the beautiful sunshine -- running or walking and learning about the USGBC and how to build a sustainable environment. Recipients received a
n official Green Mile T-shirt, water and snacks, a digital photo ... and a chance to meet all sorts of contacts and new friends.



Greening The Green Mile

  • The total CO2 emissions created by walking the course versus driving was calculated to illustrate the importance of using alternative transportation. 
  • JustGreen Lifestyle was the official carbon-offset sponsor, offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the travel of the attendees to and from the event.
  • Other mitigation efforts related to sustainable practices included the use of washable bibs for the race numbers versus printing bibs, compostible cups, signage made from recycled/renewable resources, the use of digital media versus traditional print media ... and more.
