Here at Brooks, we love running – and so does Natasha 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. It’s a simple concept: trees are planted. For every race held to date, they’ve planted over 5000 trees and hosted over 100 virtual races. And that’s making a big impact on our planet, as each tree will grow to support over 392 species and create enough oxygen to support two humans!
