Runnin' on Plenty

Now’s your chance to get on the right foot with those New Year’s resolutions.

 

Run for One Planet co-founders Matt Hill and Stephanie Tait will make a pit stop on their 11,000 mile run across the U.S. and Canada to inject a little green into your New Year.

 

The duo plans to raise $1 million to fund eco-friendly projects and collect one million green commitments from folks along the way — like those resolutions you keep telling yourself you’ll get around to, like recycling or using your own water bottle.

 

From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow, Whole Foods Arabella Station will welcome the runners with activities for the kids, a cooking demonstration and a chance to check out Hill and Tait’s biodiesel-fueled eco-R.V. (seen above), a 2005 “Regal Diesel” built by Triple E and fitted with a super-sweet solar-powered design package.
