Its a pretty simple idea. Basically, you can turn just about any outdoor fitness routine into an "eco" version. Simply bring a small trash bag with you, and pick up some litter while you are out... and then put the trash bag into a larger trash can, either at your own home, or on your way home. If you don't have a small trash bag, that's cool, pick up a piece and throw it in a garbage bin (most parks have tons of them...and yet people are still too lazy to use them!).

I know when I took tennis lessons this summer, I didn't bring trash bags with me. But, we'd get to the court and the people before us (or before them...) would have left empty water bottles on the side of the court, or by the net. So, when I left, I'd just pick them up and throw them in the trash can just outside the courts!

It is just all about not only "leaving nothing behind", but maybe taking the time to pick up a bit after others who don't care as much!

Ha! Yes, the tourist sites and areas can be a bit overwhelming for those of us who live here! I work on Wall St (not in the Exchange, but my office is on that street), and it gets a little annoying... people always coming to a dead stop right in front of you to take a picture, or standing on the corner blocking you from crossing the street. You get used to it though! That is why New Yorkers can walk in a straight line--they are tourist dogding! Times Square and Herald Square (near ESB) are the WORST! I avoid the two at all costs!

It is a great place to live though! So much is so close and easily accessible--unless you want to leave the city and don't have a car... then it gets more challenging (the BUS! UGH!)

yes and no! Yes, because even though I have a car, I don't need to use it much unless I am leaving the city. Where I live, we happen to have a Trader Joe's nearby, which helps with grocery shopping because they have a great selection of organic foods and meats at decent prices.

but on the other hand... things in NYC are just more expensive--so sometimes the option to be greener just can't be done on a budget!
