Angela told us how the Let's Go challenge has helped reduce her carbon footprint
“Since I started BetterPoints in October 2021, I have made it my mission to walk every day. The Let’s Go challenge has encouraged me to go out for an extra walk in the evening too and earn lots of BetterTickets into the prize draws.
To break up my working day I’ve been going for a walk every lunchtime from County Hall. I’ve gathered a few colleagues and we walk together. It is a great way to keep fit and make new friendships. Being more active has help with me sleep better and being in the fresh air helps with my mental well-being.
At the weekend I try not to use my car at all. I get a Flexi bus ticket and use it to go shopping. Every journey I can make on foot helps to reduce my carbon footprint.
Now spring is here, I will be using my bike to get out and about. I would encourage anyone to download the BetterPoints app on your phone. It helps to keep fit and when you have earned points you can cash them in for voucher or donate them to charity. I’ve really enjoyed taking part in the Let’s Go Workplace challenge, it’s really created quite a buzz between me and my colleagues.” – Angela
