Today bloggers the world over unite as part of the Power of We initiative in an effort to highlight the communities and organizations aimed at making the world a better place. We here at Teva pride ourselves on a commitment to keeping our water clean not only as an integral source of life but also as a part of our recreational lifestyle. Through our A Pair For a Foot program we work closely with groups such as 5 Gyres to turn attention to the growing epidemic of plastic pollution in our oceans; Waterkeeper Alliance who also work to clean and protect our waterways; Surfrider Foundation who focus on keeping our waves waste free and the Ocean Conservancy, who turn our attention to making a sea change for the big blue. Through various events and cleanups we remain committed to tidying up one foot of shoreline for every pair of Teva shoes we sell.
Out of the water Teva also supports First Descents, an outdoor adventure camp for young cancer survivors. Teva staff and athletes hike, bike, paddle and more with these brave men and women to give them an added boost of confidence in their second chance at life.
If you’re anything like us, you don’t need a special day to remind you to give back. Sometimes it simply starts with a small lifestyle change and can grow into full-blown altruism. Either way, we encourage you to visit the Blog Action Day website and the links above to our various partners. Change starts with you and positivity is infectious so tell a friend.
