Going Green

In support of Canada Army Run’s green initiatives, and in solidarity with their efforts, SURGE Activewear will plant trees to offset our carbon footprint that our event merchandise order will produce.

Planting 1 tree offsets 50lbs of carbon annually, or 1 ton of carbon in its lifetime (based on a 40-year lifespan per tree). Using averages calculated on the total cost of carbon it will take to ship the merchandise from Mexico City, Mexico, to Ottawa, Ontario, SURGE Activewear will plant 1,700 trees in 2019 to offset the carbon emissions for this event. We will also plant a tree for every item of merchandise sold during race weekend.
