Green Your Ski Season: Suit Up

Ski clothes It's just about ski season, so many are starting to think about hitting the slopes. And though the slippery sport is always fun, it's not always eco-friendly. This week's tips will help you enjoy skiing and snowboarding on a greener level.

Tip #4: Shop Consciously

It's important to be comfortable on the slopes, but you'll also want to be comfortable with the way your skiing and snowboarding gear was made. Some companies, including Patagonia and Mountain Equipment Co-Op, make warm layers out of lower impact materials such as organic cotton and recycled plastics. Patagonia's Common Threads Recycling Program transforms worn-out garments into new ones. And both clothes makers are members of 1% for the Planet.

Tell us: How will you green your ski wardrobe this season?
