Here a just a few of the many ways athletes can be more sustainable

Waste Reduction

  • Recycle old shoes
  • Buy a reusable water bottle instead of buying single-use plastic bottles, they often hold more water and will save money too! There is even a water-bottle filling station in Regents!
  • Wear clothes with less polyester, it is made from petroleum. Try recycled polyester instead (check the label) or buy clothing made from recycled plastic etc.


  • Exercise outside, Decorah has great trails that liven-up and vary your workout
  • Pick up trash along your training route once a month
