The pandemic outbreak has been giving us negative effects on health, well-being, and quality of life. Staying at home for prolonged periods of time can pose a significant challenge for remaining physically active.
However, you can still stay physically active during the self-quarantine period.
adidas and Parley’s global impact platform, Run for the Oceans, returns for the fourth year, and marks the second Parley Missions chapter of 2021.
Ahead of World Oceans Day on 8 June, adidas is harnessing the power of sport and using it as a force for change, inviting the world to unite and Run for the Oceans once again, continuing its commitment to urgently address the devastating levels of marine plastic pollution in the oceans.
For every tracked KM via the adidas Running app from 28 May – 8 June, adidas and Parley will clean up the equivalent weight of 10 plastic bottles, up to a maximum of 500,000 lbs of marine plastic waste from beaches, remote islands, and coastlines.
Since 2015, adidas has made more than 30 million pairs of shoes with Parley Ocean Plastic – plastic waste intercepted on beaches and coastal communities, preventing it from polluting the oceans. But whilst progress has been made on the journey towards a more sustainable future, there is still work to be done in reducing marine plastic pollution.
But this is just the beginning for the global initiative. As announced as part of adidas’ strategy ‘Own the Game’ in March (2021), Run For The Oceans will be further expanded to create a more inclusive digital and physical community space. By 2025, adidas aims to achieve cumulative participation of 40 million people.
Download the adidas Running app and sign up for Run for the Oceans and track your runs between 28 May – 8 June.
