In celebration of Earth Day, all MLS clubs will be wearing the adidas and Parley collaboration jerseys that support Parley for the Oceans. The special kits are built of technical yarns made using Parley Ocean Plastic.
The Colorado Rapids have organized an online jersey auction to win the game-worn Parley kits from this Saturday's game against the Chicago Fire. Fans will have the opportunity to bid starting Saturday, April 20 at 11:00 AM until Monday, May 6 at 10:00 AM via the online platform, GIVESMART or you can also text RAPIDS to 52182 to sign up and view the auction.

These innovative kits, built with Climalite technology, are made from technical yarns comprised of Parley Ocean Plastic™. As part of the global adidas x Parley initiative, plastic waste collected on beaches and in coastal communities is transformed into high-performance sportswear. The collaboration between MLS, adidas and Parley for the Oceans also serves to encourage fans to decrease their use of single-use plastics and reinforce the importance of changing human attitude and behavior towards plastic pollution through the Parley AIR Strategy: Avoid. Intercept. Redesign.
