Eco Athlete Tip: Do One Small Thing (or Three)

David Durante | Gymnastics

David Durante has lived at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for four years. That's long enough to be annoyed by the lack of recycling bins--and do something about it. Last year the gymnast founded an athletes committee that recommended ways to green the facility. Now the bins are in, gymnasium lights are turned off when not in use, and thermostats have been adjusted. Think your gym could use some Durante-esque improvements? Brainstorm with fellow members, then talk with management to make them happen.
