It’s Earth day…
And while it’s always a time to celebrate the breathtaking beauty of our biome, it’s also time to revisit some hard truths…
We’re experiencing a climate crisis.
One of the biggest issues fueling the climate crisis is deforestation.
In 2019 alone we lost 11.9 million hectares of tropical forests. To put it in perspective, that’s about a pro soccer field of primary rainforest every 6 seconds.
At Playfitt we understand the positive power of movement. Starting today, we’re launching some exciting approaches that will help your moves make a real difference.
For Earth Day 2023 and beyond…
Playfitt Earth Day Dance-a-thon 2023
Starting on Earth Day, April 22nd, Playfitt and Rainforest Alliance are bringing you a 30 day Dance-a-thon to protect the rainforest.
Every minute you dance with Playfitt will protect 50 ft² of rainforest, Earth’s most vital source of clean air, water and food.
With you and your dance moves, the goal is to protect over 200 acres of rainforest by May 22nd.
To participate just download the Playfitt app and complete your first daily dance goal.
Keep track of the Earth Day Dance-a-thon progress on the Playfitt home screen as we all dance toward that magic number of 200 acres protected!
What is the Rainforest Alliance?
The Rainforest Alliance is a non-profit organization working to create and nurture responsible practices across the business, agriculture and forestry industries.
Through several initiatives, they’re building alliances to protect forests, improve the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities, promote their human rights, and help them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis.
Learn more about the Rainforest Alliance and the positive change their work is making globally.
Together we’re excited to make every Playfitt dance move matter more for Earth Day and beyond starting with the 2023 Earth Day Dance-a-thon and continuing with permanent donation rewards in the Playfitt shop.
