Score a Win for the Green Team!

04/21/2011

How’s your favourite hockey team doing? Watching the playoffs the other day, I got to thinking about things we can do to make our favourite sports a little greener.

Just a few little things can make a difference.

Spring and summer are the best seasons of the year to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking or biking, and the best thing you can do is keep an eye on where you’re going. If you stay away from areas that might have sensitive wildlife and plants, you’re already on the right track to doing some good for your environment. There are many trails across Ontario for you to enjoy, and you can find one near you here.

If you play hockey like I do and you’re thinking about buying new equipment, and your old stuff is still in good shape, why not donate it? You’d be saving it from a landfill and helping someone out along the way too. The flip side of that is buying your next set of great at a store like Play It Again Sports, where you can buy, sell, or trade your used equipment.

There are many other ways you can make your favourite sport or leisure activity a little greener. If you’re interested, please click here for other ideas. If you’ve got a great idea of your own, let me know! Leave a comment below, share it on Facebook or tweet me on Twitter.

Enjoy the playoffs. Go team!
