Pokemon GO: Earth Day 2018 Worldwide Cleanup With Mission Blue

Pokemon GO: Earth Day 2018 Worldwide Cleanup With Mission Blue

"In collaboration with Mission Blue, we're hosting local cleanup events around the world for Pokémon GO players, and you're invited!" an announcement from the Pokemon Go team read on the game's official site. Today, developer Niantic revealed a series of events occurring on April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day.

With Earth Day coming up, Pokémon Go is trying to do its part to make the world a better (and cleaner) place by offering some unique rewards to users who simply pick up trash on April 22. "Earth Day is an incredible movement and opportunity to team up with friends and neighbors to focus on making the world and our own communities healthy and sustainable", Niantic CEO John Hanke said in a statement. Those who participate can receive a special avatar item, and a collective prize will be awarded to all trainers if enough of them participate.

Pokémon Go players have an extra incentive to care for the planet. In addition to actually cleaning up, attendees will be able to donate to the Mission Blue Foundation to help support marine protected areas worldwide.

The caliber of the rewards will be determined by the amount of trainers that attend the event - 1,500 local players will earn double Stardust drops, while 3,000 players will cause triple Stardust drops on the aforementioned Pokemon types. You can find a complete list of Earth Day events here. If there's not a local non-profit hosting an event near you, Niantic even has a form set up to make suggestions.
