45,254.24kg of recovered waste, 89% of which differentiated and sent for recycling
It may have been a surprise to see the British rider Tao Geoghegan Hart succeed Richard Carapaz in the roll of honor of the Corsa Rosa but the numbers recorded by Ride Green, the sustainability project linked to separate waste collection, promoted by RCS Sport in collaboration with the Erica Cooperative, are no longer unexpected.
The project proved to be highly successful with 45,254.24kg of recovered waste, 89% of which has been differentiated and sent for recycling, figures that are in line with the growth trend recorded in the first four editions of the project, despite working in a context where accessibility was reduced by the Covid 19 emergency.
It’s a project that this year has been enriched by the Biciscuola experience which, simultaneously with the 21 stages of the Giro, saw the involvement of 63 classes and 1,323 students from all over Italy, during the month of October, with online activities on the theme of separate waste collection and the circular economy.
In an event that took place online today, the official results of the 2020 Giro d’Italia Ride Green project were presented and the stage cities that stood out in the initiative were recognised with awards.
