Green Your Workout

  1. Stay hydrated when you exercise -- but not with bottled water. Instead of drinking bottled water, fill a reusable bottle with filtered tap water and you won't be adding to the 38 billion plastic water bottles Americans throw away each year.
  2. Select high-performance, sustainable workout clothes made from fabrics like bamboo, soy, corn, or organic cotton. Try recycled and PVC-free yoga mats, stability balls, resistance tubes, and weights.
  3. Make getting to the gym part of your workout. Leave the car (and its harmful emissions) at home, and walk or run. Depending on the distance traveled, you can warm up, cool down, or do the entire cardio portion of your workout.

Great article! It never occurred to me to buy organic and sustainable materials for my workout equipment! One easy tip: if your weights are too heavy for a particular exercise, try using two cans of beans of the same weight. No extra purchase or PVC to worry about there!
