Eco Athlete Tip: Make a Pledge

Joanna Lohman | Soccer

Having gone pro, Joanna Lohman of Maryland won't be playing in Beijing, but she may still have a presence on the field. She cofounded a group called GreenLaces this year and hopes to have 1,000 Olympians wearing bright green recycled-plastic shoelaces as a sign of specific pledges to take on climate change. (Think of it as an enviro-spin-off of the LiveStrong wristbands that adorned athletes at the Athens games.) "As a high-profile athlete," Lohman says, "you are leveraging your body to inspire others to be more eco-conscious."
