‘Pokémon Go’ to Fete Earth Day

Trainers will also have the opportunity to donate to the Mission Blue Foundation.

GLOBAL–Niantic has joined forces with Playmob to host the first-ever “Pokémon Go” Earth Day Clean Up event on April 22.

The Clean Up initiative will include a series of events at various locations across the globe and will invite players to join together to clean up the environment and their local areas. Players will also have the chance to donate to the Mission Blue Foundation, a global coalition that aims to inspire public awareness, access and support for a worldwide network of marine protected areas.

Within the game, trainers will receive access to a special avatar item and those who participate in the cleanups will unlock in-game rewards.
