Recently I read and interesting article on how the sports industry impacts the enviroment. This is a subject I wasn’t too familiar with prior to reading but immediately began thinking of simple habits that myself and others could make to create a positive change to the environment. Below are my top 3:
- Carpool to Practice, SAPT, and Games: One minivan uses less fuel and creates fewer emissions than 4 minivans so everyone wins.
- Carry a Reusable Water Bottle: Ditch the plastic disposable water bottles and opt for something durable enough to go anywhere with you like a Nalgene or canteen.
- Donate or Recycle Your Old Equipment: Old lacrosse balls and baseballs can serves a number of purposes so before you trash them ensure you get the best out of them. Once the season is over use those balls to roll out some tacked down muscle tissue. Following that, pass them along to a dog who can finish them off as a chew toy.
