How Runners Can #TurnItGreen and Win $5000!

The following post is sponsored by REPREVE

More and more I'm hearing talk about how we can help the planet through recycling.

In my house we recycle all the time. I live in a town where recycling is heavily encouraged and residents take their trash to a transfer station for sorting. At the school where I work, students and faculty are also encouraged to recycle.

Runners can follow some simple tips to go green too!

#TurnItGreen X Games contest: UPDATED!! Dates: Jan. 17 - Feb. 2.

  1. Great tips! I love the beanie -- looks so cute on you!

  2. Thanks for sharing this awesome giveaway to #turnitgreen from Repreve!

  3. Aaahhhh this is so important! I feel so passionately about this, and I am so glad to see you do too! Not enough runners are conscious of their impact on the environment as we see ourselves as innocent as we do not use that much equipment or drive to our runs, BUT the amount of water bottles people go through and throw in the trash makes me cringe! Posts like yours are so important! Great post!!! #TurnItGreen thanks Repreve! Would love to help out!

  4. I'm a heavy reuser & recycler. I'm that person that if I see rubbish on the street when I'm walking home, I will pick it up and put it in my bin when I get home.
    I have a compost as well, so all my food waste goes there. I love it, I produce very little 'rubbish' waste. Infact my recycle bin fills up quicker than my household bin, and even though the bin gets collect every week, I could put it out ever month, I don't obviously for smell issues.
    I help where I can. We only have one planet, one place to live, we should take care of it.
    So I ranted on.


I love comments!
