Eco Running and Eco Walking. Healthy Environmentally Friendly Way To Exercise

Change The World Wednesday's

Eco running is simply an act of being conscientious to clean up the environment while your getting some exercise. This can also be done when you go for a walk as well or while out playing with your kids. EcoRunning is the brainchild of Samuel Huber an avid runner and environmental champion. Check out more details about Sam at his site Eco-Runner.

It's practice is simple. The next time you go for a walk or run to get some exercise carry a bag with you and pick up garbage you see along the way. Either dispose of it in the nearest garbage can or when you get home recycle the appropriate junk and discard the rest in the trash. Not only is this good for your health it is good for the health of the environment. This is also a great way to get your kids involved in a healthy environmentally friendly activity to help raise their awareness of environmental concerns. For more information on how to get your kids involved as well as your local schools, please visit

Your welcome. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I try to do this sometimes when I am out running but I don't do it enough. If millions of the people who run and walk each day did it a little bit, we could have a significant impact on improving the health of our surrounding environment.

Hey - I do that already! Each time I go running I also bring back something (unfortunately it's often cumbersome too but I manage to finisht the run!) to make into a wall light or some other form of 'functional art.'Great blog - as an avid runner and cleaneruperer- I'll be following you.
