Green Your Sports: Eco-Friendly Running Shoes

IStock_000005418507XSmall[1] Outdoor exercise is a great way to reconnect with nature. This week, we're giving you tips to be more earth-conscious while pursuing your fitness goals.

Tip #2: Choose Green Running Shoes

Hit the trails with a pair of kicks that will help sustain the earth beneath your feet. The Green Silence shoe from Brooks has biodegradable soles, water-based adhesives, and 100 percent recycled packaging. Once you've found a new pair of sneakers, you can reduce waste by donating your used running shoes to a charity or recycling program.
