Green Laces to show you are a fan of the Planet
Greenlaces.org aims to unify environmentally conscious individuals and leverage athletics to reduce our environmental impact. Think Live Strong but shoe laces and instead of for cancer it for the environment.
The laces are made from recycled bottles. Look for them on Olympic athletes for several countries. But they not just for professionals we are all athletes and we can sport the green laces while at the gym, our kids teams just about anywhere.
The other component is that all who wear the laces are encouraged to make a promise to the planet on Greenlaces.org ... something that you will do and every time you tie your laces you are reminded of that promise. There are lists of promises athletes have made if you need suggestions.
Look to see this movement spread around the globe.
