It’s spring! For a lot of people, that means it’s time to stretch, be more active, breathe fresh air and enjoy some extra pep in your step. It just feels like a natural time of year to get out and get moving. But have you considered how getting out and about this spring can also be eco-friendly? For Earth Day this year, New Chapter® invites you to support a greener Earth as you flex and move each day.

Getting actively green

We all know that regular exercise is generally recommended for adults to support their health. But it’s also true that using our bodies and our natural range of motion can be more sustainable than using resources that pollute or deplete our planet. Here are some great ways to flex and move while reducing your carbon footprint:

Green your commute. Travel to work or school under your own power! Why not walk or bike so you have zero carbon emissions? Even walking to the next bus stop can help cut down on some fuel usage (and public transit is still greener than driving yourself).

Have active fun. Turn off the lights, put down the phone and go for a hike to enjoy the wisdom of nature! You could also learn a new sport (bocce anyone?) or renew your commitment to physical activities you already love. Gardening is a superbly green activity because it gets you moving and provides locally grown food and flowers.

Lock in to healthy habits. Make a pact with yourself this April to flex and move—for your health and the planet’s—all summer long! If you can set your intentions now and get into a healthy groove, you can make physical activity a regular reality all year round.

Maintaining mobility

To help support this pact and your ability to flex and move each day, New Chapter offers targeted compounds from whole-food nutrients and herbs that support bone and joint health. First, flex with Bone Strength Take Care® that delivers plant-sourced calcium and minerals shown to help support movement and aid joint flexibility and function.

Second, move with New Chapter’s Zyflamend® Whole Body, the patented herbal blend that has been clinically studied to help keep you moving.* Zyflamend is an intelligent blend of full-spectrum herbal extracts containing multiple naturally occurring compounds. These whole, active phytonutrients work together to support joint health.*

We wish you the best as you flex and move, and Happy Earth Day to you!
