Save a tree with Marcus Lupfer

Now the Olympics is over (well until the Paralympics, and I am beyond excited as I have tickets) we need to look for something else to support. What better way that to promote the planting of new trees via an annual Tree-Athon.
Fashion designer Markus Lupfer has designed the t-shirts for this year's event which takes place in London's Battersea Park on September 15th 2012 and is in the form of a traditional triathlon with a gardening twist.
Entrants will take part in a 5km run, a 100m barefoot sprint and will be given a free sapling tree to take home and plant.
There will also be a family-friendly festival all that day which includes children's games, arts and crafts, food stalls and live music.
All runners will wear a Lupfer-designed t-shirt to run in and there will be a limited number to buy on the day. All profits raised from the Tree-Athon and the t-shirt sales will go directly to Trees for Cities, helping them to continue to create beautiful, oxygen giving urban environments.
If you would like to get your running shoes on to actively celebrate your newly awakened interest in sport then there are far worse ways than this to do it. Check out Trees for Cities for further details.
