Green yoga tip: Hydrate responsibly!

I like the insulated, stainless steel colored Kleen Kanteen for my hot yoga practice!

Tip for Greening your practice: Buy a reusable water bottle to take with you to your practice instead of buying bottled water.

Eco impact: It takes a lot of petroleum to produce all the water bottles that Americans drink in one year. Enough petroleum, in fact, to gas up one million cars for a whole year.

Health impact: Your plastic bottles may be giving you a dose of endocrine disruptors. Phthalates have been found to leach from the bottle into the water.

Solution: Invest in a stainless steel or glass water bottle and fill it up with filtered tap water. This will pay back quickly in any case! I’ll let you do the math!
