adidas, Parley for the Oceans, and Runtastic have come together to raise awareness of the threat of marine plastic pollution, one of the biggest environmental issues in the world today. Between June 8 and July 8 we are running for the oceans!
adidas will donate US$1 for every kilometer run, capped at one million US dollars, to the Parley Ocean Plastic Program. For one month, runners around the world will come together to show their commitment to the cause, one kilometer at a time.
