Earth Day is this month and we love finding fun and unique ways to celebrate our favorite planet. The Great Outdoors gives us so many wonderful opportunities to experience beauty and appreciate the amazing playground Mother Nature provides. Here are six ways you can enjoy and support the Earth on its special day.
Commit to a sustainability practice
Whether it’s swapping out all of your current lightbulbs for environmentally friendly versions, taking reusable bags to the grocery store or revamping your recycling practice, Earth Day is a great time to adopt a new sustainability practice to continue all year long.
Go for a hike
There’s no better combination than fresh air, beautiful scenery and a heart-pumping workout. Hiking gives you the unique ability to do all three while appreciating everything nature has to offer. Just make sure you wear the right gear to avoid blisters.
Whether you have a thriving garden to tend to or have never managed to keep a potted plant alive, Earth Day is the perfect excuse to flex your green thumb. As a bonus, planting something for Earth Day makes a great activity to do with your kids. They’ll enjoy watering and watching their newly planted flowers, herbs or vegetables grow over time.
Jump in puddles
Celebrating the planet doesn’t necessarily require sunshine. Channel your inner child, put on some rainboots and go stomp through some puddles. We promise you’ll be smiling by the end.
Choose to Walk
If there’s a route you usually drive that is easily walkable, leave your car at home and travel by foot for the day. Too far to walk? Consider biking. Switching up your commute is great for your health and that of the planet.
Take your workout outside
Don’t waste time inside a gym or studio when the entire outdoors can be your fitness class. Take your yoga mat into the backyard or visit a playground and use the equipment for a DIY circuit workout.
Here’s the good news: if you enjoy your Earth Day celebration, it’s something you can easily continue — not just for a special occasion! After all, we could all stand to spend some more time outdoors and practice sustainability.
The right activity needs the right socks. Shop now.
Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.
Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.
Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)
Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you.
To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart.
The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you.
Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:
Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot.
Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
