Rotaractors of District 2420 gathered at this unique marathon, in order to fight against plastic pollution. They divided into 2 groups. First group took place at 5 different water stations that provided by Municipality of Istanbul, put recycling containers and collected plastic caps. Second group run with the athletes, collected the plastic caps that athletes left their behind.
