Sustainable Star Hawwah

07 January 2022

Congratulations to Hawwah who lives in Leicester City Centre and is our Sustainable Star for December!

Hawwah has been been making changes to the way she travels and is more active since joining the Choose How You Move Leicester and Leicestershire challenge.

Hawwah told us how using the BetterPoints app has helped her to be more active and reduce her car journeys and carbon footprint.

"Before I took part in the Choose How You Move BetterPoints Challenge I would commute by car 5 days a week. I used to go by car to college every day there and back. So I decided to try a greener way of travelling around the city. The BetterPoints rewards were just the motivation I needed to do something different.

I started walking to college, and I honestly started to feel so much better knowing I'm staying fit and also saving money on fuel or catching two buses. Public transport is great but it can take me an hour to get home which is double the amount of time it takes me to walk.

I'm fitter and stronger and it's reduced my stress levels, plus I sleep so much better. The real bonus is that I've saved money too! Another thing I've noticed is that being outdoors my skin has improved immensely and it's much clearer." 

Have fun spending or donating your BetterPoints Hawwah!
