Fuel Green

Go bulk with energy gel (both Hammer Nutrition and Carb Boom! offer 24–26-serving bottles) and carry it in reusable flasks from either FuelBelt or Nathan Sports.,

Caffeinate with Coffees of Hawaii, a company that uses locally grown beans processed on the Hawaiian islands. Owner Albert Boyce is an avid Ironman competitor—you’ll meet him in Kona if your pre-race swim practice includes a stop at his floating espresso bar boat. The company hopes to harvest its first certified organic crop in 2012.

Chow down on Clif Bar & Company products knowing that they come from an enviro-posh headquarters in Emeryville, Calif. The Clif offices utilize solar technology, repurposed materials—from reclaimed wood to worn blue jeans—and predominantly natural light.

Pick up discarded energy bar and gel wrappers on your rides and runs.
