This year, the New York City Marathon is going to be greener than ever. The world-famous event, which crosses the starting line in Staten Island on November 2, attracts runners from all over the world, including Hollywood. With so much paper waste during the marathon, the event organizers are pushing a massive green recycling initiative.

Last year when celebs like Katie Holmes and Lance Armstrong crossed the finish line, over 22,080 pounds of cardboard and plastic were recycled! In Manhattan alone, almost four tons of discarded cups were recycled.

With more than 2,271,500 cups of water and Gatorade available for thirsty runners — like actor Ryan Reynolds — the organizers are planning to increase the recycling efforts even more. Other celebs racing include New York restaurateur Joe Bastianich and iconic soccer player Brandi Chastain.
