Health And Fitness: How To Go Green

Going to the gym can benefit our personal health and sense of well-being. But have you ever considered making your health and fitness experience more green as well? Here are a few ideas for making your trip to the gym a green health and fitness excursion.

  • Forgo the plastic water bottle and bring your own drinking container. Plastic water bottles contribute to environmental waste.
  • Choose an eco-friendly detergent to launder your gym clothing and towel. Take it a step further by always bringing your own towel. Although many gyms provide towels for you, bringing your own towel you can lessen the use of bleached towels and harsh detergents.
  • Sport eco-friendly gym gear. Clothing, from shoes to tank tops, is now made from materials that are easier on the environment. Major brands including Nike, Adidas, Puma, and New Balance all provide greener options, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find something that suits your style.
