By: Tiana Reid - Published:
In many ways, athletic social innovations make sense as they meld something that many social enterprises and social entrepreneurs like to keep on their agenda: health. For instance, SocialBusiness.org spoke to the American Operations Director of Kourage Athletics, a social business that creates sportswear for men and women in a way that emphasizes the environment as well as fair trade and safe working environments -- and not to mention the importance of an active lifestyle.

From healthy happiness hubs to sustainable surf gear and accessible yoga classes, these athletic social innovations aren't simply about selling products. Some of them attempt to be more all-encompassing in their community work, like the 13th Theatre Company, which works on youth development.
