Running Is Green?

Jim posted this link to our local buffalo e-mail list. It's an article from Active.com about running and the environment. Nice read.

Running Is Green, Right?

A few tips for greener running and living (not necessarily from the article):
-Go vegetarian or vegan
-Walk more for local errands (it's good cross-training)
-Run or bike to that trail instead of driving (at least carpool)
-Stay on the designated trail
-Don't litter (and pick up trash that you see)
-Reduce, reuse, and recycle what you can!

One of the simplest things I have done is carry my own waterbottle. Saves a lot of packaging and I get hydration whenever I need.

Yeah, it's like those Brita commercials. Don't buy packaged water. Use and reuse your own water bottle. It's cheaper and better for the environment.
