Sustainable Star Maariyah

04 May 2022

Congratulations to Maariyah B who lives in Thorpe Astley, Leicestershire who is our Sustainable Star for March!

She joined the Choose How You Move Leicester and Leicestershire challenge in October 2021. Before  Maariyah took part in the challenge, she would use her car 7 days a week.

Here is what she said about participating in the rewards challenge:

"Taking part in this challenge has made me swap car journeys and ditch my car. Before I downloaded the BetterPoints app I used to drive everywhere for convenience and because I can't walk that far (because of my health). 

How has Choose How You Move helped you?

Now although I can't do what most people are doing, I can still walk distances instead of driving and occasionally I can cycle depending on how my body feels. I want to say thank you to BetterPoints because not only has it helped the environment but it's also helped me. I get more exercise, I feel happier and I've have saved money by using my car less." - Maariyah B.

Congratulations to Maariyah!
