How can I green up my workout?

Here are four ways to make your workout greener:

  • Give your walking workout more green by hiking trails or parks instead of on asphalt and concrete. If you have to walk near roads, pick low-traffic times.
  • Toss the water bottle and drink from the tap
  • Go natural. Instead of using energy with treadmills or fans, walk in a park with a cool breeze.
  • Recycle your shoes! Nike, The Shoe Bank and several other organizations have programs where you can donate your old sneakers.
