Sustainable Star Charlotte

01 December 2021

Congratulations to Charlotte B  who lives near Barkby who is our Sustainable Star for November!

She joined the challenge in October and was using her car 5 days a week. But has been been making changes to the way she travels day to day and gets out of the house to be more active as part of the Choose How You Move Leicester and Leicestershire challenge.

"I have been leaving my car at home and I walk or use the bus where I can.  I just take myself off for long walks, being outdoors really helps me to decompress and connect with nature. I've managed to loose almost a stone by being more active. The BetterPoints app really helps to motivate me, the timeline messages remind me to get out of the door and not to forget to do this!

We also asked her what benefits, have you noticed by ditching the car and tracking your activity with the BetterPoints app? 

It's been a whole lifestyle change I get more exercise, I feel less stressed, I feel happier, I have saved money by not renewing my gym membership." - Charlotte B from Barkby, Leicestershire
