Green Your Fitness: Get Greener Gear
New Year’s resolutions aside, this is a great time of year to focus on physique. This week’s tips, then, will give you ideas about how to get fit in the greenest of ways.
Tip #2: Get Greener Gear
When getting fit, it helps to have the right shoes, the right clothes, and the right, uh, support. But before you go out to buy an armful of synthetic products (yes, spandex, nylon, and their brethren were invented in a lab), remember the many green-thinking companies that produce sustainable apparel and leave your money in their hands instead. And since we can already hear the chorus of comments chastising us for promoting the buying of something new, we’ll add that we agree that buying used workout gear is about as green as it gets — check your local Goodwill or equivalent for perfectly good threads.
