Being Green in 2013: Week 2
Now that January has swiftly flown by and is coming to a close, we'd like to ask, how are your resolutions for 2013 coming along? We know you may be thinking, if this is only one month and I've already begun to fall back to old habits, how can I last the whole year? Well, fret not, we're here to help motivate you and keep you on track - especially when it comes to keeping your life green this year and creating good, lasting habits.
We thought we'd give an interesting twist to a common New Year's resolution - combining the idea of working out/getting healthy and keeping your exercise routine easy and eco-friendly. If you're just getting back into the workout routine and are buying equipment, try to find used items - like exercise bikes and weights. And when you're treating yourself to some workout gear to look good and stay motivated, maybe take a look into companies that practice and promote sustainability, such as REI, Patagonia, and Nau. Make sure to avoid plastic water bottles, and try something more reusable to cut down on extra unneccesary waste (if you have an aversion to tap water, try out a Brita filter to fill your reusable bottle!).
Here's to a new year and new habits! Keep up the good work!
