Ask your gym to go green
If the gym you’re currently attending has yet to adopt environmentally responsible practices, become an advocate for change. Ask the manager about their plans to go green and if there are any future changes being made to limit the gym’s impact on the environment. If you get a blank stare be prepared to offer solutions that will save them money by going green such as installing low-flow shower heads, switching to CFL light bulbs and asking members to use only one towel per visit. Even if you get turned down you open up the door for opportunity.
Adopting a workout routine that keeps you lean, mean and green doesn’t have to be extreme. With a few simple changes you can easily save money and resources while reducing your environmental footprint.
