Yeah! Don't forget to join the team as well! It is called "Eco-Runners" but it really for anyone who wants to "eco-ize" their fitness!!!

I'm so glad I saw this thread! I got all excited, grabbed a bag, and got in 35 minutes of rapid walking I hadn't counted on today. When I came home, I had a full bag of recyclables I was able to divert from the landfill.

P.S. Joined the team

Yes, I really loved that article. The guy, Sam, is sooo nice! I contacted him to see if I could use his official logo for our team and he was totally into the idea! I have posted about it on a couple of running teams and other environmental teams as well! I'll tell you though, eco-running is NOT easy if you are new to running! It is difficult to lose your groove by slowing down to swoop in and pick up a piece of trash!

Cool! I'm glad you found that article to be inspiring! Great idea with the Team. Good luck getting it off the ground and thanks for sharing. You might also want to share this info with other runners.

ok--this may be "touting" my own team (we are about 3 people strong), but this is a challenge to green your exercise routine!!

I started an Eco-Runners team, based on an article I read here on SP about Eco-Running. I even contacted the guy who started the movement and has a webpage dedicated to it, and he allowed me to use his official logo!

You can green any exercise routine--its simple. Just pick up some trash during any outdoor exercise and throw it in a proper waste recepticle!

Check out the team here:
