Steve Nash Goes Green

Steve Nash is not only an NBA All Star, but he is also an All Star when it comes down to taking care of the planet. See how Steve goes green!

Recycled Shoe

In early 2008, Steve Nash and his shoe sponsor Nike debut the Trash Talk Shoe - the first performance athletic shoe made out of 100 percent recycled goods. Nash has long been an advocate of preserving the environment and recycling and this shoe is a testament to his mission. The body and sole of the shoes are made from leftover rubbers and materials from shoe factories. The shoe will degrade 50 times faster than normal shoes. Even the box is made from recycled cardboard. Although though this shoe is made from trash, it meets all of Nike's quality standards. Nash and Nike hope this shoe will become the standard for all athletic shoes in the future.

The Steve Nash Sports Club

In the summer of 2007, The Steve Nash Sports Club opened its doors. The luxurious health club is one of the most earth friendly facilities in North America. They have minimized using materials that contain toxins. They also used renewable and recycled goods like rubber floors made from recycled tires and bamboo floors and locker room panels. The club also uses energy efficient light bulbs.

Walking the Walk

Steve Nash doesn't just talk the talk, he walks it too. Nash is big on recycling - he even started a recycling program when he was a member of the Dallas Mavericks. A few years ago, Steve traded in his Mercedes Benz luxury car for a practical Hybrid car. His foundation is constantly donating money to earth-related causes. Last year, the foundation started a clean-water project in Paraguay. His website also gives his readers 13 tips on how everyone can do their part to be more green.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.

So it's not really a sport. It still looks fun though. Actually, cheerleaders do compete. There are cheer competitions.  Agree! 9o9
