5 New GREEN Exercises you can start today – even when in lockdown!
There’s a new must-have accessory every avid runner needs. It’s not the latest wearable tech. It’s not a pair of amazingly supportive running shoes. No, it’s the humble refuse bag.
This is part of a new wave of fitness-meets-conservation activity that gives you the opportunity to serve the greater good while looking after yourself.
🤜 Here are 5 ways in you can combine exercise and environmentalism.🌍
You don’t need to be a proficient runner to take up plogging, which gets its name from picking up litter and jogging. All you need to do is go out for a gentle run and pick up any trash or litter you find discarded as you go along
Or you can help clean up your neighbourhood. Groups of people come together to tackle litter and trash at specific sites. They then share their results – huge piles of bulging refuse sacks – on social media and encourage others to join in. I was so inspired by this movement that I thought I need to step up my game and follow suit. After purchasing my litter picker and STOP LITTERING T- SHIRT on Amazon I was good to go. I was really shocked how much rubbish I collected in the first weeks, but the silverlinging that I received many thank yous, thumps up and even my own applause. But the best is that my actions inspired others to follow suit.
The word comes from snorkelling and straws. It’s the brainchild of a group of Australian swimmers, divers and surfers. Its aim is to get people out into the water collecting plastic waste.
4. Green gym
That’s where a group of well-equipped volunteers help to maintain green spaces due to lack of funds.
5. Just do it – outside
There is another kind of green gym. The simple act of not powering up a running or rowing machine, for example, can instantly help reduce your carbon footprint and bring down your impact on the environment.
So, all in all we are in it together and we all have to change to lead a better more sustainable life and life style, so why not get started with these 5 New GREEN Exercises you can start today?
