Let’s talk about a walk or a bike this year. I thought this was a good idea. Especially to talk about again since Climate Week just occurred. Let’s talk about what happens when people do great green things. Right?
I mean aren’t we all interested in green living but it’s real impact?
Green living and going green needs results and actions.
Here is a start.
As scientists seek more ways to harness nature’s power to produce renewable energy, there’s one energy source burned naturally every day that isn’t being harnessed: calories.
SportsArt, a 42-year-old Taiwanese athletic-equipment maker, is trying to change that by selling exercise treadmills, ellipticals and cycles that turn workouts into electricity, feeding it back into the building through an electrical socket. The company recently showcased the third generation of its treadmill to attendees of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The most efficient way to get around is by bike. You can go everywhere faster than by car and not only are you saving money, you are also protecting the environment. There are many reasons to ride your bike but one of the most important is convenience. If you are using a car for transportation, you might have to travel for an hour to get to the suburbs where there is a good road access. But with a bike, you can live in the city center and have access to all that it has to offer. Not only is cycling more environmentally friendly, it is also cheaper as well.
Cycling is also good for your health. Many people believe that they will get more exercise by riding a bike than they would by walking. While this is true, you can actually get the same amount of exercise by walking.
However, walking requires your attention. That means that you can’t be on the phone or do other things while walking. If you prefer to walk as your form of exercise, then by all means, do it! But if you live in an area with a lot of traffic and have to walk a long distance to get to school or work, then biking is a great option. You can still get in shape while doing so.
