Celebrate #GivingTuesday by Giving Your Old Fitness Gear New Life

Dec 2 2014 - 10:59am

After the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it only feels right to celebrate #GivingTuesday [1], a movement that's all about giving back. You can log on to the campaign's website and pledge your own intent to give on Dec. 2, then donate money to charity or volunteer your time — or do both by simply going out for a run using these apps [2].

There's more you can do to give back. Since exercising regularly means going through lots of fitness gear, instead of just tossing out old kicks or a worn-out yoga mat, do something good for the Earth. Here are ways to recycle or reuse old workout gear.
