CTNgreen Zen - The Attitude and Lifestyle of a life with meaning, true green

Equinox, Environmentally-conscious Exercise

Equinox, the rapidly rising fitness giant, with clubs in New York, Connecticut, Washington, D.C, Florida, California, Texas, among others, has launched a new, corporate-wide green initiative.  Promoting the twofold purpose of protecting the environment and enhancing the health and fitness of its members, Equinox has implemented a variety of environmentally-friendly practices that will make working out not only good for you but for the planet as well.  Along with the construction of new and future clubs using rapidly renewable materials and paints, sealants and adhesives with minimal or no VOC’s and state-of-the-art water and air filtration systems, like in the luxurious, innovative club on West 17th Street in Manhattan’s Highline neighborhood,  Equinox is fortifying its existing clubs with a confluence of comprehensive green practices, including using environmentally benign cleaning solutions, clean air filtration systems, easy-to-use recycling containers, recycled ceramic tile and gypsum board, efficient locker room appliances that conserve water without affecting comfort or luxury, light brown towels (which are more water and electricity efficient), energy efficient lighting and ventilation, and CleanWell hand sanitizers.  Clearly, this is a laudable example of corporate leadership and commitment.  Check out Equinox’s website at www.equinoxfitness.com.
