May is National Walking Month. Although the month will be soon coming to a close, there is still chance to get out there and get active over the next few days. There is also no reason why you can’t carry on the good work into the coming months.

The campaign was organised by Living Streets to encourage people walk for an extra 20 minutes every day.

Their tips included walking to work, school and the local shops and taking in the countryside or the sights at a weekend. They also encouraged a walk and talk work meeting, much like an Aaron Sorkin directed scene from an episode of The Newsroom or The West Wing.

Here’s a Youtube clip of what the West Wing cast, with the help from Funny or Die, had to say on their walking and talking exploits.

Awareness and action campaigns such as this do a great deal of good in the community. With people spending more and more time in and around the office, finding time to get our stretch their legs even for just 20 minutes is becoming more difficult.

Whether you’re a charity who wants to support the walking movement or a company who likes the idea of their employees getting up and active, or even just an individual looking to get their friends and family active, we have a good range of products available to you.

The National Walking month doesn’t just focus on one form of walking. Whether you’re wandering the slopes of the Peak District of the streets London, a rucksack or a backpack is a must have item. We have a great range of branded rucksacks available to be printed with your artwork.

Promotional rucksacks come in all shapes and sizes so we have the right product for you.

The next product we have is more suited to the Peak District than the London streets. We have a couple of options of branded walking sticks available. With easy grips, comfortable wrist straps and antishock cushioning, our promotional walking sticks can be a great marketing gift for the keen rambler.

An important part of the longer walks is keeping well hydrated. We have a fantastic range of branded sports bottles waiting to be printed with your artwork. These low-cost promotional sports bottles are a perfect addition to the promotional backpacks we have looked at.

National Walking Month offers a chance to get active in a fun and friendly way. For more information about the campaign head to Living Streets’ website.
