So when Pantone announced Greenery as its 2017 color—a vibrant, lively shade of green—we were thrilled.
"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings," Pantone's website reads. "Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality."
Research even suggests that simply looking at the color green sparks creativity and inventiveness. So as we head into a new year with new health and fitness goals in mind, consider new gear as part of your fitness revamp.
Specifically, green fitness gear. Here are some awesome (and affordable) options to choose from.
