Grab your keys, bike, skateboard, or running shoes because our May guide is all about getting active and getting out and about. Enjoy the scenery, enjoy the trip—make both the journey and the destination the highlight of your day no matter where you go. Here are six ways to get you moving more sustainably this month!
1. Get Your Motor Running
Before hitting the road, make sure to get caffeinated so you can stay awake, alert, and enthusiastic! Choose sustainably sourced coffee and save while you’re at it when you stop in at some of our favorite coffee shops.
2. Put the Pedal to the Metal
If you want to go on bike rides, but you don’t have a bike, try out bikesharing and only pay for your bike when you need it! Biketown is a super convenient and maintenance-free way to get around and if you click here you can save $5 on your next ride.
