The trophy of Manulife Danang International Marathon 2021 will be our extraordinary edition which is made out of recycled medals. Because of this special origin, it’s called the Green Trophy – a symbol of glory and victory. This trophy will not only reflect the brilliance, bravery, perseverance, and inner power of each individual but also embrace our mission of the Green Project to make the Manulife Danang International Marathon become a more environmentally friendly and sustainable race in the future.
This green trophy will be given to our sponsors, partners, and most importantly, the winners of the race.
Give things a second life!
Following the objective of our Green project, we are planning to reduce the waste of a marathon into the environment. All the banners, backdrops of the event will be given a second life to become beautiful products in our daily life like bags, pen cases, etc.
We cooperated with Dong Dong Saigon to collect all the used materials (hiflex) this year so that we can start to recycle them. All the products produced from the last event using hiflex will be sold in the race this year.
Dong Dong Saigon aims to raise their little voice for the environment with durable and unique recycled items with high functionality.
“Dòng Dòng”, in Saigon accent, means “to go around”, which is a way to imagine the life cycle of used tarps from old awnings or truck covers to the unique items for your daily uses.
