Sustainable Gifts for Everyone on Your List

Give to friends and family while helping the planet. This is the season to shop gifts made with sustainable materials for everyone on your list for the holidays.

The Perfect Gift To Help End Plastic Waste
Give a gift that not only contributes to a fit and healthy lifestyle, but also invests in a healthier future for the world. This season, explore gifts that are designed with sustainable materials like adidas Primeblue: Made with Parley Ocean Plastic. An innovative, high-performance material, Primeblue features Parley Ocean Plastic made from upcycled plastic waste intercepted from beaches and coastal communities before it pollutes the ocean.
We teamed up with fitness blogger Sara Quiriconi, @livefreewarrior, who is all about teaching people to live a healthy lifestyle while doing their part to protect the environment. Read on to find out more about her favorite picks from the adidas Primeblue collection.

• Repurpose adidas sneaker boxes and tissue paper as the packaging for your gift. You can even get creative with it and decorate the outside so you don’t have to use wrapping paper.
• Ship orders in bulk when possible to avoid excess transportation for your items.
• Purchase gifts from sustainably responsible companies like adidas who are making products that reduce, reuse and recycle.
