Here at Brooks, we love running – and so does Tash from Earth Runs. Like all good ideas, Earth Runs came to her on a run one day. Instead of getting throwaway medals and t-shirts at the end of races, wouldn’t it be better to do something meaningful that supported the planet and make a difference with our runs?
So, she set up Earth Runs – rewarding people for getting active by planting trees. To date, they’ve planted over 65,000 trees and inspired thousands of people to run, walk or roll – making a huge impact on our planet and to our health. Each tree that’s planted will grow to support over 300 animals, birds and reptiles and create enough oxygen to support two humans for a year!
