Month of Green: Taking the stairs can prevent weight gain and help the environment
Small steps can add up to a big difference for the planet.
In today's Month of Green segment, we show you one small step you can take at work!
No matter what the pace, stair climbing is a great addition to your exercise plan. It doesn't require any special equipment and can be done just about anywhere.
Studies have found walking up the stairs just two minutes a day can help prevent weight gain.
It also helps the planet! Any energy saved is good for the environment.
If you think it's just a small amount of energy - you're right - but if everyone who could take the stairs did take the stairs, we'd see some significant energy savings.
