Sustainable Star Tiana

12 August 2021

I'm doing more exercise... it's a win-win really!

July's Sustainable Star, Tiana, tells us how the Choose How You Move Challenge has helped her to be more active and reduce her carbon footprint.

"I've been using the BetterPoints app for about a year. It encourages me to walk and use different modes of transport rather than a car. We used to get around by car a lot but because of the points it motivates us to walk and take the bus instead of the car and to reduce our CO2 emissions.

My whole family used to get around by car every day, the app has helped us all to be more active.  It's also improved my health because I'm doing more exercise.

I'm getting out and cycling and walking, which is good for mindfulness as well. I like to go walking in the morning and the evening every day, pretty much. I'm getting outside, breathing the fresh air and seeing plants and nature, so it's a win-win really!" - Tiana from Glenfield Leicestershire
