This Workout Gear Can Make Your Daily Sweat Sesh A Little More Eco-Friendly
Exercise is hard enough without also worrying about what you're doing to the planet. Grabbing a plastic water bottle, using PVC yoga mats, buying workout gear with dubious environmental cred: it can all add up. Fortunately, though, there's a thriving industry for sustainable workout products, and no matter what your choice of exercise routine, whether you're a yoga fan, a weights maven, a runner, or a surfer, there's an option for you to make your sweat sesh a bit more environmentally friendly. And it does make a difference.
Gyms around the world are making more eco-friendly choices, including sustainable design, renewable power, and powering their facilities using exercise bikes. (Hey, it's a way to keep the lights on.) And as the exercise industry focuses on sustainable and environmental priorities, that means we've got more options for making our own workouts greener. Little things matter — from our choice of cleaning wipes, to where we buy our yoga mats and how we deodorize ourselves — and it's worth getting educated on it. Being healthy and strong doesn't have to come at the cost of the planet. Here are 10 products that can help your exercise habit, while also helping the planet.
