adidas has partnered with Crunch to give you 10% bonus value on your Crunch credits.

adidas is a global designer and developer of athletic and lifestyle footwear, apparel and accessories with the mission to be the best sports brand in the world. Driven by a relentless pursuit of innovation and with decades of sports science expertise, they cater for everyone from elite professional athletes and teams to anyone who wants to make sport part of their lives. adidas are obsessed with helping athletes of all levels to make a difference – in their game, in their lives, in their world.

Through sport, community, education and eco-innovation, adidas have been at the forefront of taking big, bold steps towards ending plastic waste, and supporting a circular future to build a better tomorrow for you and our planet.

As a signatory to the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, adidas have committed to reduce both its own and its suppliers’ greenhouse gas emissions compared to 2017 by 30 percent by 2030 and to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

Using initiatives such as Run For the Oceans and products made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic, adidas is working towards a more sustainable future.

adidas’ commitment to end plastic waste.

Using more recycled polyester is a way adidas seeks to improve their environmental footprint while still making high-performance products for the athlete. Polyester is the most common single-used material in adidas products and, by 2024, they aim to replace all virgin polyester with recycled polyester in all products where a solution exists.

adidas have also removed plastic bags from stores, so millions of purchases now go home in responsibly-sourced paper bags. They have also banned single-use plastic from their offices worldwide, and are also educating employees, athletes, and communities and empowering them to join the fight against plastic. 

To date, their annual Run For the Oceans event has brought together more than 3 million runners to raise awareness for our most precious resource, raising more than 2.8 million AUD to help clean up beaches and to educate young people about the plastic problem and the state of the oceans.

This is just the beginning of adidas’ work to remove plastic from its business. adidas has pledged to replace virgin polyester in their products with 100% recycled polyester by 2024, and by 2030 reduce its carbon footprint by 30%. The longer-term aim is to move away from plastic as a material altogether, to help save our oceans, our planet, and every single one of us.

We see possibilities in what’s best for the athlete must be better for the planet. And by creating products made to be remade, others can see the possibilities in helping to end plastic waste. – adidas
