Go Green Get Fit Sponsor Spotlight on PlanetShoes.com

Can you believe Summer is almost over and there are just three weeks left in the 2012 Go Green Get Fit Challenge? How are your eco-fitness goals coming along? Healthy Home Magazine and EcoMom Alliance are having a great time hosting the 2012 Go Green Get Fit Challenge and we’re so thankful to our presenting sponsor, PlanetShoes.com, who generously sponsored eco-friendly fitness shoes for 30 of our favorite green bloggers for the event.

Sponsor Spotlight: PlanetShoes.com

At PlanetShoes.com, they’re big fans of Mother Earth. But they also like to look good, which is why they endeavor to bring us the best shoes, bags and other accessories in the most eco-conscious way possible. A lot has changed since they launched in 2001, but one thing will always stay the same: their commitment to their customers and our planet.

They pick only the very best products for our site, and they particularly like those that blend function, style, comfort and value with eco-ethics. They’ll help you replace your old faithfuls or discover a new favorite. With more than 160 brands to choose from, you’re sure to find a winner.

Shipping: Reduce your footprint with our CarbonFree(R) Shipping option. For a nominal fee, you can offset the carbon emissions that result from the shipment of your order and support renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects globally that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the threat of climate change.

Giving: PlanetShoes.com is proud to make our planet a little greener through partnerships with charitable organizations like Soles4Souls, 1% for the Planet, and the Conservation Alliance.

We know the shoes we’ll find at PlanetShoes.com are greener than what you’d find in your average shoe store. But how do they perform? The Go Green Get Fit Bloggers put dozens of styles to the test for various activities at all levels of fitness. Here’s what they have to say about their Planet Shoes in activities ranging from walking to trail running to hiking to crossfit:

Toxic Baby’s Penelope kicked off our blogger reviews by road testing her OluKai Melia flip flop sandals in the city this summer. Verdict? Gorgeous, green and extraordinarily comfortable, even when rocking a two and a half inch heel. Read more…

Kimberly of EcoMom Alliance felt comfortable, secure and ready for more in her new Ahnu Hiking Boots, and learned some life lessons with pre-teens along the way. Read her post All I Really Need to Know I Learned on the Trail for the full story.

Nancy of Surviving and Thriving on Pennies is gearing up for Oregon’s rainy season with her new Merrell Hiking Boots. She’s taking the challenge to a new level and conquering her fear of heights along the way! Read more…

Mindful Momma Micaela hiked her way through a Colorado with her family in her new Patagonia hiking boots. She found them to be “super comfy, extremely durable and made with lots of recycled material.” Read more…

Katy Farber didn’t want to take her new comfy Solomon XR Crossmax Guidance trail shoes off as she took to the trails to try them out. Her post Lessons from the Trail is filled with wisdom for trail runners, both experienced and new. Read more…

Healthful Mama Gretchen found her Keen Venice H2‘s to be the perfect combination of long-walk-worthy comfort and waterproof necessity, and confesses that she hates wearing shoes. “I generally wear only flip-flops and it’s saying a lot that I stare wistfully at the Venice H2 until I have a reason to put them on”. Read more…

Lynn of Celebrate Green selected a walking shoe called the Kalso Earth Shoe in the Prosper style, and while they aren’t the perfect fit for her daily walking routine, they have filled a perfect niche for her as beach walking and biking shoes. Read more…

Tiffany of NatureMoms.com wanted a shoe that could stand up to the most difficult CrossFit workout. She tried out the ECCO BIOM Lite 1.3 and says “I can see already that I will gravitate to these shoes on days when I will be running/sprinting and less so on days when I am lifting weights. But for any CrossFit WOD you can’t go wrong with these”. Read more…
